Women by Women: 50 Years of Women’s Photography in South Africa showcases photographs of and by South African women. Editors Robin Comley, George Hallett and Neo Ntsoma made their selection from a range of what 75 photographers considered their most significant images of women. A rich and varied picture of women’s lives emerges from the diversity in both content and types of photographic practice, including press photography, social documentary, fashion, lifestyle, sport, art and conceptual photography in chemical and digital format. The photographers include well-known names, established professionals, emerging talent and rising stars. In the captions and essays written by the photographers, we learn of their experiences in the field and the passions that drive them, and we hear their individual voices – at times enigmatic, intimate, passionate, incisive, activist. The women photographed in this collection comprise our national heroes, sport and fashion icons and strugglistas, as well as unnamed women from all walks of life: they are our mothers, sisters, aunts and daughters. Commissioned by the Ministry of Arts and Culture to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1956 Women’s March, Women by Women is the first publication to record and promote the positive contribution made by women to the art of photography in this country.
