'The photographer makes masterful use of darkness as a communicative tool, and when light appears, it is as a scarce and distant gift, often emanating from an unseen clearing, or reflected by an animal or human form; it is not inherent. Koenning plays with scale (are we inches from the seabed, or many feet above a hillside?) and muddles the line of vision: a mountainside through a dirty window, a seascape through a cloth, pelicans in a cage. In Koenning’s hands, we are face to face with the calamity of the Earth, the things that are happening to its landscapes and its species; The Crossing is like dropping a pearl into murky water and watching it sink from view.' - Alice Zoo

'The photographic industry - its exhibitions, galleries, publications and auctions - employs thousands of women, but champions mostly men. To begin to redress the balance, here is a timely presentation of the work of over 30 female photographers working today. This book is predominantly a celebration of some of the most inquisitive, intelligent and daring photography being created now. The stories the photographers tell are the most pressing social, political and personal issues seen through the female lens (...)  There is a recurring theme throughout the book that serves to unite these extraordinary women and their work: the exploration of marginalized individuals and under-discussed subjects, seen by fresh eyes.


A vivid showcase of work by more than thirty of the world’s leading contemporary female documentary photographers, presenting a cross-section of photographic disciplines and geographies; Ying Ang, Evgenia Arbugaeva, Poulomi Basu, Behnaz Babazadeh, Endia Beal, Haley Morris-Caferio, Juno Calypso, Natasha Caruana, Scarlett Coten, Bieke Depoorter, Maria Gruzdeva, Alma Haser, Mayumi Hosokura, Corinna Kern, Katrin Koenning, Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Diana Markosian, Diana Matar, Chloe Dewe Mathews, Zanele Mulholi, Aida Muluneh, Anja Niemi, Regine Petersen, Jill Quigley, Magda Rakita, Lua Ribeira, Mariela Sancari, Laura el-Tantawy, Newsha Tavakolian, Sanne De Wilde, Cemre Yesil, Yunya Yin and Chen Zhe.'
