Thames and Hudson Ltd: Firecrackers: Female Photographers Now

The photographic industry employs thousands of women, but champions mostly men. To begin to redress the balance, here is a timely presentation of the work of over thirty young female photographers working today. This book is predominantly a celebration of some of the most inquisitive, intelligent and daring photography being created now. The stories the photographers tell are the most pressing social, political and personal issues seen through the female lens. Firecracker, established in 2011 by Fiona Rogers, is an online platform dedicated to supporting female photographers worldwide by showcasing their work. Building upon Firecracker’s foundations, this book brings together photography that encompasses an eclectic variety of styles, techniques and locations, from German Alma Haser’s futuristic series of portraits that use origami to create 3D sculptures within the frame, to Egyptian Laura El-Tantawy’s filmic and intensely personal series on political protest in Cairo. There is a recurring theme throughout the book that serves to unite these extraordinary women and their work: the exploration of marginalized individuals and under-discussed subjects, seen by fresh eyes. Fiona Rogers and Max Houghton offer insightful and expert authorship and curation.

Features:

  • 300 photographs of global stories: the most pressing social, political and personal issues seen through the female lens.
  • The most original photographic talents in contemporary photography are women – this book demonstrates this and provides a much-needed platform.
  • Insightful and expert authorship and curation: in their respective well-established roles in the industry, Rogers and Houghton understand, champion and shape contemporary documentary photography.
