  11. Surrealism • A number of women used photography as a medium for expressing their interest in surrealism • Surrealists did not rely on reasoned analysis or sober calculation • The use of such procedures as double exposure, combination printing, montage, and solarizaton dramatically evoked the union of dream and reality

  12. Dora Maar (1907-1997) • Performs a typical surrealist inversion, making an ugly or even repulsive subject compelling and bizarrely appealing

  13. Awards • Emma Barton • The first woman to be awarded the Royal Photographic Society Medal in 1903 • It was for a carbon print entitled: The Awakening • Virginia Schau • The first women to receive the Pylitzer Prize for Photography • Photographed two men being rescued from a tractor trailer cab as it dangled from a bridge in Redding , California
