"A Young Woman, N.Y.C." explores post-war representation in American fashion magazines through fashion photography and fashion journalism. It considers the contributions of Maeve Brennan and Diane Arbus to this field and maps a connection to the urban field work that defines their later
careers as a writer and a photographer respectively.
Photography & Culture is a refereed journal that is international in its scope and inter-disciplinary in its contributions. It aims to interrogate the contextual and historic breadth of photographic practice from a range of informed perspectives and to encourage new insights into the media through original and incisive writing.
Photography & Culture publishes research papers, discursive critiques, and reviews. In doing so, it offers a leading platform for critical thinking on photography and as essential reading the world over for academics, curators and practitioners with a central and indeed tangential interest in the media.
