 Documenting The Power Between Women and Reading

Documenting The Power Between Women and Reading

 

Artist Carrie Schneider explores the connection between women and the power of knowledge in the photo series Reading Women. Each photograph focuses on the intimacy of women in their homes with books personally chosen by each. Including the names of each woman and titles of the books, Schneider shows how personal learning can be. Reading Women will be on display until September 9 at the Miller Institute for Contemporary Art at Carnegie Mellon University.
