About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

Ursula Bohmer addresses the mystical nature of the cow in a unique and unusual project. Between 1998 and 2011 she travelled through 25 European countries to portray these strong, yet docile animals. She photographed various breeds, many of them threatened with extinction, on their native terrain, where different climates have molded their physiognomy. With over 70 black-and-white photographs as well as a glossary on the origins and features of the 50 breeds portrayed, All Ladies displays the diversity of agrarian cultures as well as Europe's shared cultural history.

"In an age when animal husbandry has been near-uniformly industrialised, the German photographer Ursula Böhmer has worked for more than a decade on a project that reminds us that the beasts caught up in that commercial enterprise remain individuals, even if we prefer not to think of them that way."
