Celebrating International Women’s Day Through Photography: Blogs and Publications We’re Following

March 8th is acknowledged as International Women’s Day, and several photo blogs and publications are celebrating the holiday by sharing great work women are doing all over the world. Here’s a roundup of some of the Glasshouse favorites that you should definitely check out. If you’ve come across any great projects, articles, or great women in photography or art, let us know in our comments section — we’d love to share it on the GHA Facebook and Twitter!

SILVER: A State of Mind“: San Francisco-based Photographer Vicki Topaz has released a DVD of her portrait series, “SILVER: A State of Mind,” in celebration of International Women’s Day. Topaz’s portrait series is about women and aging, and seeks to inspire conversation and discussion. The DVD pairs the portraits with spoken interview excerpts from several of the subjects, along with music by jazz vocalist Wesla Whitfield (who is also featured in the series).  To read more about the DVD and series, check out PRWeb’s article.

National Geographic‘s Explorers Journal Blog: Today the blog is celebrating IWD by sharing photographs of National Geographic Women Explorers who’ve shared great words & insight. One of the women, Kelsey Wilson, is a young explorer who has started a project that provides cameras to Omani women artisans to inspire them through photography.

Lens Culture’s weblog is sharing 55 Female Photographers who are “making the world a better place. ”

The Huffington Post posted photographs of work from 10 Female Artists to Watch in 2013. While we work specifically in the photography industry, it’s wonderful to see other creative ways women are making their mark!

Additionally, the Glasshouse Agents look back on recent stories and campaigns that GHA photographers have worked on that highlight inspirational women. Ryan Pfluger has recently photographed Playwright Amy Herzog, Coca-Cola President for North America, Katie Bayne, and United Nations Foundation VP for Global Partnerships, Elizabeth Mckee Gore.

We were honored to have Glasshouse photographers Ryan Schude and Trevor Dixon participate in gmmb‘s recent campaign, 40 Faces of Choice, for Choice Out Loud. For the campaign, Trevor photographed portraits of wife and studio manager, Issa Dixon, as a “Face of Choice.”

We love the creative and exciting work that women are producing globally, and look forward to seeing continual efforts to create recognition and awareness of equality for all people everywhere. To read more about International Women’s Day’s history and mission, visit their website.
