The exhibition realized in collaboration with the Municipality of Udine, Ken Damy Museum of Brescia, Fratelli Alinari of Florence and the Photographic School in the Nature of Rome is dedicated to women photographers that marked out the 20th century: those women have left and still keep leaving their indelible fingerprints in the evolution of photography as an independent art.

This ambitious project wants to reveal a cultural and creative estate in the history of the international photography that have been imposing for the last 100 years a non usual point of vue.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog with a preface written by Naomi Rosenblum, the most important historian of photography in the world, and presents 150 women photographers who characterized the 20th century and among them: Dototrhea Lange, Diane Arbus, Mary Ellen Mark, Sarah Moon, Cindy Sherman, Francesca Woodman, Annie Leibovitz, Olga Tobreluts, Danielle van Zadelhoff, Elizaberh Opalenik, Umida Ahmedova, Dita Pepe, Dorothee Golz...and other else.

A video-interview of Naomi Rosenblum realized by her daughter Nina (film-maker proposed for the Academy Award for Documentary Feature in 1993) will be displayed during the exhibition. The exposition is curated by Silvia Bianco (Musei Civici di Udine), Ken Damy (Ken Damy Museum) and Walter Liva (CRAF, Spilimbergo).
