15 Inspiring Photomontages That Fought Gender Stereotypes Of The 30’s And 40’s

Grete Stern was a German photographer who fought against gender stereotypes of the 30s and 40s with her strange and surreal images blending typography, advertising, and avant-garde photography to create unconventional depictions of women. In a time when women were expected to keep quiet and stay at home, Stern joined the Bauhaus school and began making work that looks like it could have come straight from a dream. Stern's surreal images feature women as lost and domestic figures. Their eyes are glazed over and hollow. The message here is clear – women are treated as objects. And these photomontages represents how it feels to be lost in that stereotype. Via: So good so bad
