Photographs by Petra Olschewski. Essay by Jula Dech.
Edition Stemmle, Zurich, German, 1987. In Switzerland. 159 pp., numerous duotone illustrations,, 8¾x11".

Frauenbilder presents a collection of photographs of and by women. The motive behind the collection is the editor's desire to address the "problem" of the authority of the photographer, traditionally male. Yet within the book format the relationship of viewer to image is always distant. Rather than undermine the authority of the "gaze" this collection inadvertantly supports it. Only in the unusual images of Annegret Soltau, Viola Kiefner, and a small group of artists who directly manipulate their prints does the power of this anthology make itself truly felt.
