Women Photographers – Firecracker – Street Photography

 

 

Firecracker is an online platform dedicated to supporting european women photographers.
Despite many fantastic women working with photographic media, the industry continues to be dominated by male counterparts.
Firecracker assists the promotion of women photographers by showcasing their work in a series of monthly online gallery features.
Photographers are brought to our attention via a network of industry professionals and guest curator spots from high profile individuals.

Established in January 2011, Firecracker is an online platform dedicated to supporting and showcasing talent of women photographers across Europe.

 The project’s founder is Fiona Rogers, who also serves cultural and education coordinator at Magnum Photos in London. She says that “despite many fantastic women working with photographic media, the industry continues to be dominated by their male counterparts,” and it is out of this frustration that Firecracker was born.
Polly Braden and Kate Hooper, two street photographers, are set to appear in the second Firecracker event organised next month to coincide with the London Street Photography Festival
