“Mallarme said that everything in the world exists in order to end in a book. Today everything exists to end in a photograph.” —Susan Sontag
Hanna Putz (featured in the first slide of this preview) nurtured her awareness as a photographer, starting out as a model in front of the camera. Echoing Sontag’s sentiment, she has looked for ways to shake up the “permanent posing” of her generation. In creating portraits of friends who had recently given birth to their first children, she noticed a remarkable shift in awareness. “Their attention is mainly on their child, and [they] are also in some kind of a transitional phase, as they are adjusting to the new role that has just been given to them,” said Putz in an interview with BJP.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Newsweek & The Daily Beast features work from 15 talented women who represent a range of remarkable awareness as lovers, daughters, mothers, and foremost artists.
