About the Book
“She Took Her Own Picture” is the inaugural collection of self-portraiture from members of the Female Self-Portrait Artists’ Support Group.
The first book of its kind, featuring images and profiles of 44 artists, the book is bursting with sumptuous artworks by emerging female self-portraitists.
Though photographers and painters like Cindy Sherman and Frida Kahlo are world-renowned for their contribution to the female self-portraiture movement, this book demonstrates that more and more women are taking control of their own image and exploring and experimenting with self-representation.
These are artists to watch.
Formed by Laurel Fiszer as a place for female self-portrait artists to share and discuss their art and experiences, the Female Self-Portrait Artists’ Support Group has blossomed as an inspirational and nurturing online meeting place for over 1,200 emerging and established self-portrait artists to interact. Whether recording honest portrayals of personal stories or embodying characters in their own fictional narratives, the members of the FSPASG enjoy having ultimate control over their images as photographers, subjects, editors and exhibitors.
