Exposure: Girlgaze

Art Director Gem Fletcher examines the world of photography, with a focus on new talent, photobooks and exhibitions from around the globe. In the latest instalment she looks at digital media platform Girlgaze.

I discovered Girlgaze on Instagram in 2016. Back then it was a small but mighty (36k followers) curation project celebrating a diverse range of work by young female photographers. It was initially conceived as a call-to-arms, a method of highlighting the social and gender bias in the creative industries. In twelve months it’s rapidly evolved into a full digital media company that aims to support, nurture and create space for future generations of female photographers.
