From the Back of The Woman Behind the Lens:

“…Frances Benjamin Johnston… was a significant – and arresting – figure in early twentieth-century photography, but few who know her images know much about the woman who made them. This first full-length biography – beautifully illustrated with forty examples of her work… – explores both the surprising range of Johnston’s talent and her high-stepping, controversial character.”
