The artists featured in this book offer us their own interpretations of the world, filtered through the camera, and show us what is worth looking at among the barrage of images that bombard us. Their strength is the ability to combine languages: not only photography, but elements of cinema and painting as well. Through Women's Eye showcases a number of great artists, from Diane Arbus and Nan Goldin to Bettina Rheims and Letizia Battaglia, along with many others. Their images are a collection of views that pass through moments of fleeting joy and moments of sorrow, moments of levity but also of passionate lyricism, that speak of empathy for the fellow human beings and of harmony, which are the true subjects of life.
Francesca Alfano Miglietti is an art critic and teacher of theories and methods of the contemporary at Brera, Milan Academy of Art. She also works as a curator of various exhibitions and an author of books and essays on contemporary art.
