Throughout the summer, we will continue to feature photographs from our WOMEN SEEING WOMEN exhibition and the unique stories of the women behind and in front of the camera. _______ Olivia Arthur was born in England. In 2009, only a year after becoming a member of Magnum Photos, Arthur was invited to teach a photography workshop to a women-only class in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. After becoming friendly with her students, she cautiously began photographing them as they granted her exceptional access to a world not usually within the view of Western eyes, and not even Saudi men. This series in the exhibition was published in a book called Jeddah Diary in 2012, and illustrates the elaborate negotiations necessary and unprecedented opportunity in photographing a segregated and “unseen” community of individuals. _______ #StaleyWiseGallery #StaleyWiseandMagnumPhotos #OliviaArthur #Jeddah #WOMENSEEINGWOMEN #MagnumPhotos70 #Photography

Throughout the summer, we will continue to feature photographs from our WOMEN SEEING WOMEN exhibition and the unique stories of the women behind and in front of the camera. _______ Photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe was born in California. After her first photograph published appeared in Vanity Fair in 1933, she moved to New York and opened her photography studio. Her early documentary portraits of rural America gave way to an established career as a staff fashion photographer for Harper’s Bazaar. Dahl-Wolfe was at the forefront of early color fashion photography and accompanied her timelessly elegant photographs of high fashion in the 1940’s and 1950’s with a sophisticated naturalism and celebration of a more athletic and spirited woman, and she was later credited by Richard Avedon as one of his most lasting influences. Dahl-Wolfe died in 1989. _______ Betty McLaughlin, circa 1940 _______ Liz Gibbons as Photographer, 1938 _______ Natalie, Hammamet, 1950 _______ Coco Chanel Leaning on Chair in her Apartment, Paris, 1954 _______ Colette in her apartment in the Palais Royale, Paris, Harper's Bazaar, 1951 _______ Elsie De Wolfe (Lady Mendl), Paris, 1946 _______ Ophelia, Nashville, 1932 _______ Marlene Dietrich circa 1938 _______ #StaleyWiseGallery #StaleyWiseandMagnumPhotos #LouiseDahlWolfe #BettyMcLaughlin #LizGibbons #CocoChanel #HarpersBazaar #ElsieDeWolfe #LadyMendl #Ophelia #MarleneDietrich #NatalieHammamet #WOMENSEEINGWOMEN #MagnumPhotos70 #Photography #red #reddress #woman #mood #vibes #fur #portrait

Throughout the summer, we will continue to feature photographs from our WOMEN SEEING WOMEN exhibition and the unique stories of the women behind and in front of the camera. _______ Inge Morath was born in Austria. After working as a journalist and translator, Morath was originally employed by Magnum Photos as an editor and researcher before she was officially named a photographer in the agency in 1955. One of her most famous photographs of the society dowager Mrs. Eveleigh Nash is exhibited here, and was the result of an early photojournalism assignment in London. In 1956, Morath visited Iran, where she would stay for nearly one month and took over 5,000 photographs, including these two exhibited here. Due to a light leak in her camera which would not allow her to print the photographs without flaws, most of these images remained largely unseen during her lifetime. After Morath died in 2002, these negatives were digitally restored and the subsequent photographs published in the 2009 book Inge Morath: Iran. _______ Eveleigh Nash at Buckingham Palace Mall, London, 1953 _______ Veiled Muslim women and caged cockatoos, Shiraz, Iran, 1956 _______ Isfahan, Iran, 1956 _______ Veiled women and girls struggling through heavy rain, Tehran, Iran, 1956 _______ #StaleyWiseGallery #StaleyWiseandMagnumPhotos #IngeMorath #Iran #WOMENSEEINGWOMEN #MagnumPhotos70 #Photography

Throughout the summer, we will continue to feature photographs from our WOMEN SEEING WOMEN exhibition and the unique stories of the women behind and in front of the camera. _______ Photographer Deborah Turbeville was born in Massachusetts. After a career as a fit model and fashion editor in the 1960s, she took a six-month photography course taught by Richard Avedon and Marvin Israel and launched a new career with her spectral, purposely out-of-focus photographs. Her most famous image was taken in 1975 for VOGUE. This photograph of five models leaning against the walls in the shower room of an abandoned bath house was considered to be among the most controversial images in the magazine’s history, and was interpreted by some as a paean to “Auschwitz and lesbians and drugs”, as Turbeville recalled. Turbeville published books on subjects and places as varied as Versailles and Guatemala, and photographed an advertising campaign for Valentino only one year before her death in 2013. _______ Bath House, New York, 1975 _______ #StaleyWiseGallery #StaleyWiseandMagnumPhotos #DeborahTurbeville #BathHouse #WOMENSEEINGWOMEN #MagnumPhotos70 #Vogue #Photography
