Traditionally a male-dominated field, street photography is increasingly becoming the domain of women. Reflecting that shift, this collection of images showcases 100 women photographers working the world’s streets today to capture a wide range of unique moments. The fully illustrated volume explores how cultural changes in gender roles have overlapped with technical developments in the camera to allow key figures to emerge. Offering an insight into the realities of working as a woman photographer in different countries, the photographs offer a glimpse of what happens when women are behind the camera.
