Women in Photography Newsletter

Women | Photography, a newsletter edited by author Malavika Karlekar which foregrounds the role of women as visual chroniclers and creative artists, broadening the established canons of lens-based histories within and outside the subcontinent.

In this edition, researcher Senani Dehigolla narrates a personal account of her experience of the mass uprising on 9 July 2022 which took place on the streets of Colombo, Sri Lanka; a photo-essay by writer and photographer Sohini Sen, reflects on her adventures through the Suru and Zanskar river valleys of Ladakh, highlighting the predicaments faced by women travellers and photographers in an unfamiliar and rugged terrain; Suryanandini Narain reviews the photobook How We See: Photobooks by Women published by 10×10 Photobooks (New York) examining the genealogy of an overlooked art form to which women practitioners have made important contributions.
