If you have a weekend afternoon to spare, don’t miss the Museum of Modern Art’s Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography. It celebrates the work of important women photographers over the last 160 years, including some of our favorites, like Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin and Tina Barney. Especially illuminating were the early prints by 19th century artists Gertrude Kasebier and Julia Margaret Cameron. See a few pieces from the collection »
