Coinciding with Women’s History Month, Rizzoli Publications will be releasing a book containing a collection of photographs gathered by art collector Peter J. Cohen depicting adventurous and rebellious women during the 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s who visually pushed through the boundaries of acceptable behavior for women in their time. The images, which were collected by Cohen over the span of 25 years, are black and white snapshots found in flea markets around the world and on eBay. What began as a side project eventually grew to a collection of more than 60,000 photographs of vivacious females. Though the women remain nameless, their fearless spirit strikes a chord with any woman who has felt suppressed by societal expectations.
