Do Men and Women Take Different Photos?

Posted on: 14 March 2009

At the International center of Photography in New York last year, Associate Curator Kristen Lubben found herself talking a lot about a timeless subject: the differences between men and women. She was co-curating part of an exhibit of photos of the Spanish Civil War by Robert Capa and Gerda Taro. The two had been lovers and professional partners at that early point in their careers. While Capa went on to become one of the 20th century’s most renowned war photographers, Taro died in 1937 at age 26, after being struck by a tank.

“We had Taro upstairs and Capa downstairs,” says Lubben. “It was an interesting test case for some people—do men and women take different pictures? As I gave tours of the exhibition, I was constantly asked about it.”

Such fascination makes sense. Gender is an endlessly debatable topic. The debate gets fiercer when it turns to boys-versus-girls. And the stakes get higher as more women take up cameras. [via PopPhoto]
