From the 1940s to the 2020s to the present, the history of photography in these more than 80 years has experienced modern photography, documentary photography, feminist photography, manipulation photography, and postmodern photography. In the expression of photographic art creation in different eras such as postmodern photography and contemporary photography, female artists have not been absent during such a long time span, especially since the 1980s, showing amazing and extraordinary creative energy.
