In Real Life: Six Women Photographers by Leslie Sills

Six short biographies are included in this compilation of women photographers including Imogen Cunningham, Dorothea Lange, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Carrie Mae Weems, Elsa Dorfman, and Cindy Sherman. Each biography is limited to information about how each woman was led to the profession of photography and  her eventual career as a photographer. Photos from each woman are also included. It is interesting to note how each woman used photography differently, either to bring an issue to the public's attention or to show human emotion, or to make a viewer think and come up with their own conclusion about a photo. A brief explanation of how a camera works appears at the end of the book along with additional resources for each photographer. Suitable for children in grades 4-8 and those interested in photography or career options.
