“We are doing this because we can,” Holly Stuart Hughes, PDN’s editor in chief, said in a statement. “There is a fantastic breadth of talent and expertise among women photographers working today. It wasn’t difficult to create a whole issue of PDN featuring business insights, technical information and outstanding new work from women photographers who are leaders in advertising, photojournalism, and fine-art photography.”
The September issue embodies significant movements and contributions that women in the industry have made, with timely commentary on the proliferation of groups created by and featuring only women that include Women Photojournalists of Washington (WPOW), a profile on groundbreaking South African portrait photographer Zanele Muholi, an excerpt from the book of celebrated photographer Mary Ellen Mark, who passed away in May of this year. Cover to cover, every article, column, profile and photograph in the issue was written or photographed by a woman.
Below, In Sight features 10 female photographers across the industry that our photo editors think you should know about, some of whom are featured in PDN’s issue.
