Girlgaze

In the classic textbook History of Art by H.W. Janson, only 27 female artists are represented. In eight major museums, only 28% of solo exhibitions spotlighted women throughout the 2000s. For a woman breaking into the industry, the obstacles are unquestionably harder. That’s why we need to put girls behind the lens — not just in front of it. @AmandadeCadenet teamed up with @TeenVogue to launch #girlgaze, a social media-fueled hunt to showcase the next generation of female photographers. Together with the help of industry notables like Amber Valletta, Lynsey Addario, Sam Taylor-Johnson, and Inez van Lamsweerde, we’ll be sorting through your submissions for the chance to be featured in Teen Vogue, plus a special NYC #girlgaze exhibition. Just post your photo with #girlgaze to get the party started.
