OUR MISSION

Photographing the Female is a global platform that uses the transformational power of visual storytelling to explore what it means to be female around the world today. We believe in art as a universal language that holds the potential of changing perceptions and catalysing deep and long-lasting social impact.

Our mission is to promote, produce, and share powerful stories and perspectives from all over to help the world understand how diverse, complex, and extraordinary the female experience is. As we reflect on the state, role, and condition of the female today we also make it our mission to question, challenge, inspire, and educate.  

We research and look to different regions, cultures, industries, and social contexts around the globe for inspiring stories, image makers, partners, and collaborators who, like us, believe in building empowering communities around boundary-breaking storytelling. 

 

WANT TO COLLABORATE?

We are always looking for new collaborators from all industries who share our passion and believe that by working together we increase the influence of what we do. 

Photographing the Female was founded in 2016 by Danish photographer and writer Sarah Høilund with the inspiration and help of Danish fine art photographer Matilde Søs Rasmussen and Poulomi Basu,  acclaimed Indian photographer and women's rights advocate.
