A hundred photographic heroines
Photography is still male dominated – but, 100 years after British women first voted in a general election, the UK’s Royal Photographic Society has compiled a list of 100 inspirational female image-makers
What do Sophie Calle, Rineke Dijkstra, Susan Meiselas, and Hannah Starkey all have in common? They’re all on the list of 100 contemporary women photographers picked out by the UK’s Royal Photographic Society, after an open call for nominations. Over 1300 photographers were recommended to the organisation by the general public, which was slimmed down by a judging panel headed up by photographer Rut Blees Luxemburg.
