Forgotten female photographers front and centre: Lissa Mitchell

From Nine To Noon, 11:20 am on 28 June 2023

A beautiful new book puts New Zealand's forgotten female photographers back in the frame.   History has largely forgotten women who first took photographs, not to mention those who made it in front of the lens.  Here, curator of historical photography at Te Papa Tongarewa, Lissa Mitchell's new book shines a light on women's contribution, both amateur and professional, in early photographic studios and on location. She walks Kathryn through Through Shaded Glass: Women and Photography in Aotearoa New Zealand 1860 -1960, from Te Papa Press.
