The Unretouched Women exhibition is reviewed on Hunger

Now showing at The Rencontres d’Arles, The Unretouched Women is an exhibition showcasing the work of Susan Meiselas and Eve Arnold  alongside Abigail Heyman. The exhibition combines work from the three photographers’ photobooks all published in the 1970s – including Arnold’s The Unretouched Woman and Meiselas’s Carnival Strippers – which challenged gender bias and put “women to the test of the photographic image, avoiding stereotypes to draw alternative representations.”

Read a write-up of the exhibition on Hunger here. You can see more work from the The Unretouched Woman here, and Carnival Strippers, here.
