by Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe. Publisher's Description. Viewfinders offers an important selection of images that reflect the history of a people and the achievements of black women photographers in America. With growing interest in the contributions of black women to America's heritage, this informative work fills a void in the history of this strong yet little-known group by documenting their contributions through a period of more than one hundred years.
In 1985, Arthur Ashe’s widow, the photographer Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, published a historical survey that she called Viewfinders: Black Women Photographers. Viewfinders chronicled the work of the (largely disregarded) black female photographers that Moutoussamy-Ashe had meticulously unearthed, dating back to 1866.
In 1986, photographer Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe challenged this narrative with the publication of Viewfinders: Black Women Photographers-a collection of images and biographies spanning the mid-1800s to the 1980s. Though singular, the volume ensured their accomplishments would not be lost to time. Three decades later, inspired by the work of pioneers like Dr. Deborah Willis and Moutoussamy-Ashe, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn and Delphine Fawundu sought to create a new historical document that spotlighted a younger generation of black women photographers.
