This exhibition includes work from a selection of Women Photograph’s grantees from our first five years of programming. These images document everything from deeply personal family histories, to stories about conflict, reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ identity, and more. The work is at times challenging, brilliant, tender, and groundbreaking. Women Photograph is deeply proud to have been able to support these incredible women and nonbinary photographers in the continuation of their vital projects, with huge thanks to partners Nikon USA, Getty Images, Adobe, ONA, and the Pulitzer Center for all of their support towards our grants program since Women Photograph’s inception. We hope to be able to continue to support photographers and stories like these for years to come.

    Women Photograph is a nonprofit that launched in 2017 to elevate the voices of women and nonbinary visual journalists. The private database includes more than 1,400 independent documentary photographers based in 125+ countries and is available privately to any commissioning editor or organization. Women Photograph also operates an annual series of project grants, a year-long mentorship program, an annual skills-building workshop, and collects data on hiring and publishing statistics in the visual media industry. Our mission is to shift the makeup of the photojournalism community and ensure that our industry’s chief storytellers are as diverse as the communities they hope to represent.

  • Photoville


    Founded in 2011 in Brooklyn, NY, Photoville was built on the principles of addressing cultural equity and inclusion, which we are always striving for, by ensuring that the artists we exhibit are diverse in gender, class, and race.

    In pursuit of its mission, Photoville produces an annual, city-wide open air photography festival in New York City, a wide range of free educational community initiatives, and a nationwide program of public art exhibitions.

    By activating public spaces, amplifying visual storytellers, and creating unique and highly innovative exhibition and programming environments, we join the cause of nurturing a new lens of representation.

    Through creative partnerships with festivals, city agencies, and other nonprofit organizations, Photoville offers visual storytellers, educators, and students financial support, mentorship, and promotional & production resources, on a range of exhibition opportunities.
