More Women in Trees

Climbing Up Again


More Women in Trees

More vintage photographs of women in trees—a quirky and adorable gift book

“What are they all doing up there?” wondered the Zürich Tagesanzeiger. "It’s probably a forgotten popular sport,” suggested Der Spiegel. There was even speculation about the “secret sex life of trees.” One thing is certain: Jochen Raiss’s Women in Trees, published by Hatje Cantz in 2016, immediately became a bestseller. Perhaps it happened simply because the evident happiness felt by these women (who may have simply been in the mood to climb a tree) is palpable to us all.

Women in Trees made us happy—and hungry for more. So Hatje Cantz asked the obsessive collector Raiss if he might have some more of “the goods,” and he did. He has, after all, spent 25 years searching for and finding anonymous masterpieces such as these, which is why we now have More Women in Trees: how can you possibly get enough of them?

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Telegraph UK

Lucy Davies

The very best are those where the knowledge that she is doing something mischievous is written all over the climber’s face. She is giddy with it. Who knows what became of these women? But I like to think that, even if they were fettered by propriety every other day of their lives, just this once, they felt free.

The Paris Review

Idra Novey

...all these women, nearly a century ago, sitting in trees like the boys they never were are riveting.

We salute the participants in this weekend's upcoming Women's Marches with 'More Women in Trees'

During the first half of the twentieth century—roughly around the time that the Suffragette movement was picking up speed here and abroad—an interesting photographic genre was born: the Woman in the Tree. Some of these photos were clearly made by loving men, who directed their adorable girlfriends, daughters, sisters or wives to climb on up. Others capture rather more empowered subjects, who ascended a bit higher than might be safe—huge grins across their faces. In Hatje Cantz’s wonderful new collection of unattributed vernacular photography, More Women in Trees, we also find one woman and her girlfriend taking swigs from a bottle, and others who have been liberated from their skirts altogether—whether in bathing costumes, or in the newfangled fashion for trousers. This isn’t a book about the Suffragette movement, but we are featuring it in anticipation of this weekend’s upcoming Women’s Marches just the same! continue to blog
