RPS re­veals the 100 hero­ines

Amateur Photographer - - 7 Days -

IT’S BEEN a busy few months for the RPS, with Nan Goldin and other big names hon­oured at its 2018 Awards. The RPS has now re­vealed its 100 hero­ines, a non-ranked list of the top con­tem­po­rary fe­male pho­tog­ra­phers. A panel of ex­pert judges whit­tled down the list af­ter an un­ex­pect­edly large num­ber of nom­i­na­tions from the gen­eral pub­lic.

The list in­cludes some fa­mous names, in­clud­ing the afore­men­tioned Nan Goldin, along with Mag­num’s Su­san Meise­las and Britta Jaschin­ski, who is the founder of Pho­tog­ra­phers Against Wildlife Crime. The hero­ines will be hon­oured at a spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion and they will also re­ceive a medal­lion named af­ter Mar­garet Harker, the first fe­male pres­i­dent of the RPS.
