Women Photograph  announced the recipients of the 2017 grants: the Women Photograph + Pulitzer Center grant of $5,000 will go to Alex Kay Potter for her work documenting ongoing conflict in the Middle East. The three Women Photograph + ONA grants of $2,500 will go to Luján Agusti, Gabriella Demczuk, and Néha Hirve. They have received more than 500 applications from photographers around the world

Ms. Agusti, an Argentine photographer, will use her award to continue her project on Mexico’s clowns who come out for festivities celebrating saints and holy days. The clown figures harken back to the earliest days of the Spanish conquerors and are a result of a syncretic mix of Catholic and pre-Columbian indigenous beliefs. The project’s first chapter was published on Lens.

Most new photography grants or awards are announced with great fanfare promising long-term impact. But if Women Photograph succeeds in helping visual storytellers, there may eventually be no need for it, said Daniella Zalcman, a freelance photographer who founded the group.

 

“En algún mundo perfecto del futuro, la mitad de los fotoperiodistas que trabajan serán mujeres y no habrá necesidad de subvenciones para fotógrafos de color o mujeres fotógrafas”. “Pero ahora mismo, mientras trabajamos para nivelar el campo de juego, absolutamente necesitamos crear oportunidades intencionales para enfrentar los enormes desequilibrios en la comunidad de fotoperiodismo”.

Zalcman and her volunteer team have been collecting data about the gender breakdown of the photographers in the best-of-year roundups as well as the front page photos and covers of major Western newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Le Monde, Time, the Atlantic and National Geographic. The results indicate that between 75 and 95 percent of the most important photos that readers see are taken by men.

“The dearth of opportunities for women, she said, means that “readers in the U.S. are essentially seeing the world through the eyes of men.”
