It's always honorable seeing brands like Hasselblad create initiatives to celebrate women at making their mark into the photography industry and that is pretty male-dominated. They are back with Hasselblad Heroines that will be kicking off the second-year installment on 8 March 2020, International Women’s Day. For 2020, they will be featuring seven (7) photographers and we have taken the liberty to feature them here. By putting a spotlight on these talented creatives, Hasselblad Heroines hopes to encourage the next generation of female photographers to go against the grain and bring their creative visions to life.
In their words
Hasselblad proudly continues its second year of Hasselblad Heroines, which highlights various female photographers making their mark in the photographic industry. Kicking off the second-year instalment on 8 March 2020, International Women’s Day, is the first Hasselblad Heroine Swee Oh. Through weekly spotlights over a total of seven weeks, each Heroine will share their experiences in their career, challenges in a typically male-dominated industry, and inspiration in their art through short video interviews.
