Find inspiration from the female visual voice as you read through our weekly photographer interviews updated every Monday. The Leica Women Foto Project will feature photographers from all over, highlighting their unique perspectives and experiences within photography.
"The photograph for me is an object of memory and explores the value of self in documenting everyday life. As a photographer, educator and curator, I have used photography to visualize stories about the everyday and, in the past, asked students and artists to use the photograph in a narrative form to explore personal memories."
"Having worked with many of photography’s past icons, I am now interested in the work of emerging photographers who will someday shape the future of photography. I continue to be drawn to the magic of photography, and I love the surprise of how each new generation of photographers bring their own uniqueness to elevate us to a new and unseen realm."
"My advice would be that the photographers should be thoughtful in their approach and first have an idea in mind of what they will shoot before they press the shutter. A series is only as strong as the poorest picture. Implement your soul into your work and let it become a leading voice in your work. Tell amazing stories through YOUR eyes, heart and soul!"
"I have always attempted to capture a feeling. I want to capture what the heart feels, not what the eye sees.. I am hoping that with initiatives like this one, we can encourage people to step outside the “Gender Box” and see the world as people. Just people."
"Be kind and generous.. What does this have to do with photography? Everything! And it’s up to you to figure that out. If you take enough photographs you are bound to get something good but I can tell you that the people who continue to work are the ones who retain their humility and remember we are nothing without the people in our photographs.. In my book, photography is NOT about us, it’s about them.."
