Happy International Women’s Day to all FotoRoom’s female readers! In 2020 we continue our tradition of releasing a 8 March list of ten women photographers whose work we’ve published over the last 12 months to celebrate female photographic talent; but this year we’re also excited to remind you that we’re currently running a FotoRoomOPEN call for women only: the winner may be picked up for representation by New York based, all-female agency ACN studio (find out more and submit your work).

On to the list now! The featured photographers are ordered alphabetically, and whenever possible (which is almost in all cases) we’ve chosen pictures from their respective works that have women as subjects.
