Fisheye Magazine #44 – Digital edition
Women photographers come out of the shadows
After our special issue on women photographers in 2017, and the dossier published two years ago on the 10 women who make photography in France, Fisheye returns once again to the lack of visibility of women in the 8th art. The awareness of this underexposure is beginning to be recognized, as evidenced by Une Histoire mondiale des femmes photographes, which has just been published by Textuel editions, which we report on in this feature. But the road is still long. This is underlined by a study commissioned by the Ministry of Culture, whose figures we publish here. The institution has also taken the initiative, with Paris Photo, to organize a digital journey as part of its policy to promote the visibility of women photographers. This platform, ellesxparisphoto.com, brings together nearly 40 women, young, confirmed, little known or who have marked the history of photography. Biographical information, interviews and videos allow us to look back at their commitments.
