Devoted to life and work of Canadian-born photographer Margaret Watkins, this book tells the story of an artist in difficult circumstances whose working life spanned a Victorian upbringing in Hamilton, Ontario, and witnessing of first Soviet Five-Year Plan. It makes available Watkins' work in reproduction as part of an interdisciplinary study.
"Seduced by Modernity is three things in one: a most remarkable, vivid biography of a fascinating person; an analysis of the oeuvre of an important artist-photographer; and an extremely successful study of the interrelations of twentieth century art, gender, and mass culture, interlaced superbly with supporting theoretical passages. This is an extraordinary accomplishment." Lora Carney, University of Toronto
