Our environment is packed with pictures, often of poor quality, especially when it comes to pictures that depict women. These pictures are everywhere in our daily life, they highly standardized the way we see women today: they focus exclusively on women’s sex appeal, and in doing so, they omit to show women as complex, rich, and deep internally human beings.

Pictures of Women is an essay about pictures and education: it aims both to point out the problems and give solutions to the reader. It is a call to create more sustainable pictures and bring fair and inspiring pictures home. Along keys to understand the pictures of women, the book provides a list of fair and inspiring pictures to uplift your life and the society.

Johanna Schär is a French and Swiss art historian specializing in photography. She won the Swiss Prize for encouraging research in art history in 2009. She has a strong interest in pictures, education and sustainability. Pictures of women is her first book.
