Photographers for International Women’s Day

On this International Women’s Day (8 March), I remind myself how photography is made and viewed differently from either the male or female perspective.

Please check out these photographers whose work I greatly admire. Much of the following is personal, brave, unflinching, and provocative.

I prefer (and highly recommend) looking at photography as prints, in galleries, or in photo-books. Having photos take on physical form provides a kind of tactile permanence which seems “more real” to me than a mouse-click or a screen swipe that are far too ephemeral for my liking. Have a look online; then, seek work by one or all of these women at an art gallery and/or a bookstore.

    Hi Henry! Fabulous list. I agree, there is nothing like looking at photos in a print or paper format. I think it makes them seem much more real.
