Pictures of smuggled elephants’ feet and a gay “cure” clinic are among the works by photographers on the Royal Photographic Society’s A Hundred Heroines list. The RPS today announced the 100 women chosen in a campaign honouring contemporary female photographers around the world.
The Royal Photographic Society has just announced their list of Hundred Heroines, women from across the world whose work is transforming photography today. These female photographers, who were nominated online (anyone was allowed to make a nomination), have inspired and challenged others, highlighted particular issues or shown bravery or courage through their image-making. The final list has been whittled down from some 1,300 nominations from members of the public.
