For half a century, Angelika Platen has been photographing mainly black and white portraits of artists, including Georg Baselitz, Josef Beuys, Hanne Darboven, Bridget Riley, Marina Abramović, Katharina Grosse, and Andy Warhol. Platen’s third monograph, Meine Frauen (My Women), is the first to gather together the female art scene (in an art world still dominated by men). With her unmistakable character studies as part of her photo series, Platen Artists—taken in studios and galleries—and in a congruence of image and work, the artist devotes herself this time exclusively to female visual artists. Here, she shows an exciting, varied, photographic panorama of over one hundred female artists. 

With portraits of:
Marina Abramovic, Monica Bonvicini, Sophie Calle, Hanne Darboven, Cecilia Edefalk, Isa Genzken, Asta Gröting, Candida Höfer, Roni Horn, Leiko Ikemura, Joan Jonas, Herlinde Koelbl, Marlena Kudlicka, Annie Leibovitz, Julie Mehretu, Anette Messager, Marzia Migliora, Katharina and Pola Sieverding, Rosemarie Trockel, Jorinde Voigt, and others.

ANGELIKA PLATEN (*1942, Heidelberg) became the director of the Gunter Sachs Gallery after studying photography in Hamburg. She began working on her evocative, black-and-white portraits in the late 1960s. Today, she has gathered more than a thousand "Platen Artists" to form a fascinating gallery of personalities from half-a-century of living art history.
