A CAMPAIGN that will champion unsung female photographers, educators, writers, curators, and those in other photographic spheres around the globe has captured the attention of South Shields MP, Emma Lewell-Buck.

To celebrate the centenary year of women’s suffrage, the Hundred Heroines campaigns calls on members of the public to nominate their photography heroines and to raise awareness of the impact women have on one of the most universal and accessible forms of visual media.

Emma is getting behind the campaign, as a champion for women in all walks of life. 

Emma said: “This important campaign is shining a spotlight on often overlooked women in the field of photography and giving them the recognition they deserve. I will be nominating someone myself and encouraging others to nominate a photographic heroine of their own and join this campaign.

“I’m looking forward to celebrating the achievements of the many featured female photographers later this year in Parliament.”

This international campaign is a chance to highlight inspirational women in photography. As South Shields’s first female MP, Emma is passionate about celebrating the work of heroines from all walks of life.
