Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

3 years ago, we wrote a blog post called 25 Inspirational Ladies of Street Photography. A lot has changed in the street photography scene since then, so we feel it’s time for a new, updated, larger list dedicated to women street photographers.

In an attempt to promote more active women street photographers, (i.e. photographers who actually take street photos during the time of writing) Streethunters.net explored the web in search of ladies who like shooting in the streets and share some, most, or all of their street photos online. Not all of them are strictly street photographers. Some of them shoot street on their spare time, others even less than that, but all of them have photos worth sharing and that is why they ended up on this list.

Before we present you with a roll call of these ladies, we kindly ask you to send in any names of female street photographers you know and would like to see in this list. But that is enough for an introduction, let’s go and meet the women street photographers you should follow on the web.

  1. That thank you Spyros, I’ve never heard of Bambi No Muere until now. Great selection, looking at their photos it seems the ladies do better with colour than men.

  2. Enjoy the list. Impossible to get all the great ones so +1 for Cat Byrnes in NYC who I follow on ig. Strong color work.

    • Hello Maria!

      I am looking at your work as I am typing these words. Loving what I am seeing!
      I will be adding you to the list once I get some free time on my hands. Thank you so much for reaching out. It is impossible to find everyone just by using Google and my personal resources 🙂

      Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!

  3. That’s a fresh list for me, Spyros. My own list would include:

    Imogen Cunningham – https://www.imogencunningham.com/

    Grace Robertson – http://www.britishphotography.org/artists/19156/statement/grace-robertson

    Helen Levitt – https://www.lensculture.com/articles/helen-levitt-helen-levitt-new-york-streets-1938-to-1990s

    Genevieve Hafner – http://www.genevievehafner.com/

    And not to forget Eve Arnold and Vivian Maier. One current young female street photographer worth praising and even learning from is Ami Strachan. She has the bug, the eye, and the enthusiasm to become one our great young British street photographers. Here’s her website. Do have a look: http://blackandwhitestreet.com/user/3038

    • Keith hello. Always a pleasure to read your comments. The list we have made is for active women street photographers, that are producing work at the moment and that is why we have left out shooters such as Vivian Mayer, Mary Helen Mark, etc. We are interested in promoting contemporary shooters so we can give them the exposure they deserve. I will be giving Genevieve Hafner and Ami Strachan a closer look by the way. Their work looks very interesting! I have much respect for Robertson, but she has retired.
      Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!

  4. Go ladies, go!
    The list of female Streets Photographers will be longer and that is very enjoyable!
    Thank you Spyros Papaspyropoulos, you have not forgotten the female front 🙂
    For us is the street photography not an intermediate phase but a real passion and despite some claims NOT DEAD!

    • Hello Georgie!

      Thank you very much for your comment. I am very happy you like the list!
      Street photography is a way of life and it can’t die away. I agree with you.

      Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!

    • Olá Tete!
      Thank you for getting in touch. It looks like the list is going to become massive! I already have received more than 20 new suggestions. This is so exciting. Thank you very much for recommending Bruna and Mel, loving their work 🙂 I will be updating the list sometime next week and notifying via social, so stay tuned!

  5. Thank you so much, Spyros, for myself and all the women out there! I know how much work must have gone into this; it feels great to see women getting recognition in the genre.

    • You are most welcome Melissa! I am happy you understand how much hours of research went into this list. Since this post has gone live I have been contacted by many more amazing women street photographers and I really want to find the time to update it with new names.
      Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!

  6. Yay, Spyros, thank you warmly for including my name in this list – and compiling it in the first place! You’re doing fantastic work getting the word (or image lol) out for some fabulous women street photographers who deserve recognition. Very much appreciated!

  7. Maybe someday I’ll make this list. Would love you to take a look. A photo of mine was chosen this week as part of a competition and book with @friendsinperson and @1415mobilephotographers (Emily Garthwaite won grand prize!) On Instagram I’m at @marcislindsay. I’m no spring chicken but just coming back to photography and new to street photography.
