RPS reveals the 100 heroines
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.
