The female form has long been a favorite subject among artists, often admired or even worshipped as an idealization of beauty. Photographers, too, have produced many masterpieces of women, whether as portraits or artistic works.

Emphasizing femininity, elegance, delicateness, glamor, motherhood and strength, this selection of 35 monochrome photographs of women by 24 artists features some by well-known names, including Wynn Bullock, Debbie Fleming Caffery, Harry Callahan, Takashi Arai and Osamu James Nakagawa.

With photographers from such diverse backgrounds, including several from Japan, the exhibition offers an opportunity to see different perspectives of the notion of femininity.
