“Women behind the lens continue to be seriously unrepresented in the industry, and the gallery. However things are changing, as women’s photography groups are becoming highly proactive, attempting to readdress the balance.

For this event f22 (Women Photographers at the AOP)HundredHeroines and #209women, three important women’s photography organisations, are brought together to talk about the work they do in support and promotion of women photographers, the problems they have had to overcome, and what they see next for women in photography.”

I am very pleased and extremely honoured to be invited to speak at the WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHERS NOW  talk at  The Photographers’ Gallery on behalf of f22 Women Photographers at the AOP. Also speaking will be Hilary Wood founder of #209women and Del Barrett founder of HundredHeroines, both women who I admire, and whose initiatives I have been fortunate to have taken part in.

f22 launches today to coincide with International Women's Day!

Over the last year there has been a surge in photography groups, 
organisations, awards and initiatives set up in an attempt to equal
out the discrepancy between the numbers of women and men working as 
commercial photographers - currently only 18% of photographers at the
AOP are women!

f22 will exist to provide a dedicated network for open discussion,
share knowledge and most importantly lobby towards changing the 
gender inequality within our industry. #thefstartshere!

If you would like to join the AOP there is a new Accesss membership
@ £25 for the first year.
Or simply follow our progress on Instagram @f22aop

HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY!
