hasselblad heroines celebrates female photographers

hasselblad heroines is a photography movement that was initiated on march 8 2019, international women’s day. in an industry overflowing with men, a diverse selection of female photographers are spotlighted. through weekly reflections, each heroine shares their experiences, tips, and inspiration with their hasselblad to fellow photographers.

slovakia, seattle, st. petersburg and san francisco are a few of the places these female photographers call home. some of them freelance for large corporations. others capture intimate weddings. still others photograph wherever their camera leads them. their style, cultures, and artistic eyes are as different as the photos features here. from traditional heroic poses, to angsty portraits to abstract introspection, each photo tells a different story. for more about each artist, see the full hasselblad heroines series, here.

the first installment of hasselblad heroines 2019 concludes today, with a feature of 8 photos. while the hasselblad brand camera certainly ties these women together, the underlying commonality between them all is their profound talent and success in a slowly changing industry.
