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 non-profit that launched in 2017 to elevate the voices of women and nonbinary visual journalists. The private database includes more than 1,300 independent documentary photographers based in 115 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 within the industry. Those numbers continue to affirm that only about 15-20 percent of visibly working news photographers are women, even though women make up roughly 75 percent of photography and photojournalism students globally. 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.
