‘At a time when women were expected to be mothers and wives, not professional photographers, Marilyn Stafford blazed her way into photographic history. Her distinctive approach was deceptively casual and yet psychologically revealing. Over four decades from 1948, she would shoot world leaders and poets; artists, writers, and mourning mothers; children playing on the street, victims of war, refugees, and fashion models.

Having grown up in the Depression, Marilyn was acutely sensitive: she wanted to use her camera to cast a light on injustice, to tell stories that had, in her words, ‘something important to say’. (Jennifer Higgie)

  1. Leon M

    A really beautifully produced book. Handsome large format, and heavyweight paper.

  2. Elizabeth Wagar (verified owner)

    A lovely book covering experiences in post WW2, fashion photography, and travels to the Mideast and India . Her early years working with Cartier- Bresson are reflected in her later innovations using large frame photography.

  3. Sharon Dean

    This is magnificent book. Highly recommended as a gift for any lover of photography. Marilyn Stafford is a truly inspirational woman.
