Book Club | Women and Nonbinary Perspectives

Open your eyes to a new worldview with 100 photographs from women and nonbinary visual storytellers.

85% of the world’s photojournalists are men. That means that an overwhelming percentage of our visual historical record has been seen through men’s eyes. To counter this serious ethical problem, Women Photograph flips that bias on its head to show what and how women and nonbinary photojournalists see.

From documenting major events such as 9/11 to capturing serially misrepresented communities, this book presents a revisionist contemporary history: pore over 50 years of history in 100 photographs. Each image is accompanied by 200 words from the photographer about the experience and the subject, offering fresh insights and a much-needed perspective.

Until we have balanced, representative reporting, the camera cannot offer a mirror to our global society. To get the full picture, we need a diverse set of people behind the lens. This book offers a first step.

Relearn how to see with this evergreen catalogue that elevates the voices of women and nonbinary visual storytellers.

Women Photograph: What We See’ by Daniella Zalcman and Sara Ickow gives readers a fresh perspective through the lens of women and nonbinary.

“These images forge a crucial modern history: one where such perspectives that have historically been ignored – behind the lens and in front of it – are illuminated with care and respect.” — Kat Chow.

The book is available for pre-order now, and will release on March 7, 2023!
