Women Photograph: What We See photo book

Open your eyes to a new world view with 100 photographs from women and nonbinary visual storytellers.

85% of the world’s photojournalists are men. That means that an overwhelming percentage of our visual historical record has been seen through men’s eyes. To counter this serious ethical problem, Women Photograph flips that bias on its head to show what and how women and nonbinary photojournalists see.

From documenting major events such as 9/11 to capturing serially misrepresented communities, this book presents a revisionist contemporary history: pore over 50 years of history in 100 photographs. Each image is accompanied by 200 words from the photographer about the experience and the subject, offering fresh insights and a much-needed perspective.

Until we have balanced, representative reporting, the camera cannot offer a mirror to our global society. To get the full picture, we need a diverse set of people behind the lens. This book offers a first step.

Relearn how to see with this evergreen catalogue that elevates the voices of women and nonbinary visual storytellers.
