Item description for Painted Ladies by Nick Hedges...

In the early twentieth century the postcard provided an immediate and direct form of communication-rather like text messaging today. Made by anonymous photographers and hand-colored by thousands of unknown women working in their studios, hand-tinted cards became one of the most popular of art forms. This extraordinary collection encompasses cards from throughout the world, including Africa and the Middle East, many raising issues of colonialism and exoticism. Painted Ladies provides a colorful and fascinating insight into the fashion, culture, and interests of the early twentieth century.

British-born Nick Hedges is a well-respected photographer in his own right. He has published a number of books of his own work and has exhibited widely.
