Black Women Photographers

Black Women Photographers

Launched by photographer Polly Irungu in July of 2020, Black Women Photographers has grown to a community of over 700 active members from around the world. The collective’s mission is to help get Black women photographers hired, and supports its members through promoting their work in an active database distributed to photo editors and art buyers. The collective also features education and support for its members through the regular programing of webinars, workshops, trainings, and portfolio reviews.
