Eight Girls Taking Pictures
A NovelLarge Print - 2012
A New York Times Bestselling Author -- In a profoundly moving novel, the bestselling author of How to Make an American Quilt imagines the thoughts and circumstances that produced eight famous female photographers of the twentieth century. This captivating novel opens in 1917 as Cymbeline Kelley surveys the charred remains of her photography studio, destroyed by a woman hired to help take care of the house while Cymbeline pursues her career. This tension -- between domestic duty and ambition, between public and private life, between what's seen and what's hidden from view -- echoes in the stories of the other seven women in the book.
