photographic collections | new arrivals

Explore the world through the eyes of women street photographers as they document the ways humankind inhabits the urban environment. Originally a male-dominated field, street photography is increasingly becoming the domain of women. This exuberant collection of images reflects that shift, showcasing 100 contemporary women street photographers working today, accompanied by personal statements about their work. The book also includes biographies of women photographers from history who paved the way for the next generation. The volume is curated by Gulnara Samoilova, founder of the Women Street Photographers project, which has an Instagram presence of nearly 90,000 followers. Photographer Melissa Breyer's introductory essay explores how the genre helps us understand the way we live today - and how women throughout history have been uniquely poised to navigate the terrain. In turns intimate and candid, these photographs offer a kaleidoscopic glimpse of what happens when women are behind the camera. AUTHORS: Gulnara Samoilova is a fine art and street photographer based in New York City and the founder of @WomenStreetPhotographers Instagram feed and the travelling exhibition. She has received national and international awards for her photographs from 9/11, including first prize in the World Press Photo competition, the New York Press Club award, and Interphoto Photographer of the Year. Melissa Breyer is a photojournalist specialising in street photography.
