Be Part of History: Help Us Shine a Light on Women in Photography!

Calling women interested in photography

HH has an amazing collection of objects related to the remarkable history of women in photography, including photographs, books, and other historical pieces. This collection has grown so fast, it needs your help to be properly organized! This is a fantastic opportunity to:

  • Meet new people who want to know more about history and photography.
  • Dive deep into the fascinating world of women photographers and their contributions to the field.
  • Gain valuable knowledge about contemporary art and its connection to photography.
  • Boost your CV with transferable skills in photography, organization and data management.

No experience is necessary! We’ll provide comprehensive training to get you started.

What will you be doing?

  • Scanning and photographing the objects in the collection.
  • Creating detailed descriptions for each item in a special catalogue.
  • Carefully packing the items for safekeeping.
