Open your eyes to a new world view with 100 women photojournalists' stories from behind the lens. 85% of photojournalists are men. That means almost everything that is reported in the world is seen through men's eyes. Similarly, spaces and communities men don't have access to are left undocumented and forgotten. With the camera limited to the hands of one gender, photographic 'truth' is more subjective than it seems. To answer this serious ethical problem, Women Photograph: What We See flips that bias on its head to show what and how women and non-binary photojournalists see.

From shooting major events such as 9/11 to capturing unseen and misrepresented communities, this book presents a revisionist contemporary history: pour through 30 years of women's dispatches in 100 photographs. Each shot is accompanied by 200 words from the photographer about the experience and the subject, offering fresh insights and a much-needed woman's perspective. Until we have balanced, representative reporting, the camera cannot offer a mirror to our global society. To get the full picture, we need diverse people behind the lens. This book offers a first step.

Relearn how to see with this evergreen catalogue that elevates the voices of women and non-binary visual storytellers.
