Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography at MoMA

Managed to catch this interesting exhibition at MoMa - from Virginia Woolf's grand-aunt, the Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron (her first exhibition was in Ireland? Really?), to Maya Deren, Dorothea Lange, Mary E Frey, Gundula Schulze-Eldowy, Nan Goldin (or course), and Alex Prager ("Despair", above, featuring Ron Howard's daughter Bryce Dallas Howard) - among many other female photographers through the ages. None Irish though. Dorothea Lange has photographed in Ireland - does that count?
