Photography Legends of History A-Z

Here is just a selection of female photographers from history that have helped shape photography and art as we know it. Some names you will know and some you may never have heard of before but all are worthy of a place in history. I have included a wikipedia info link via the artist’s name where possible, or their own website so if you wish you can read their biography, see more of their work and learn about their style…….so sit back and get inspired by some amazing artists from the last 100+ years!

Enjoy Cheers Jules :)

PS Some letters are filled with info about photography in general, this is not to say that women with last names beginning with E,I, J,V,X and Z don’t exist it’s just that I found them impossible to find on the web or I got freaked out by copyright issues.
