30 By 30 Interviews

30 Contemporary Women Photographers

And the Women Photographers Who Inspired Them

A Blog Series in Honor of Women’s History Month by Professional Women Photographers

30 By 30 is a series of interviews that  appeared on the Professional Women Photographers’ website in honor of Women’s History Month 2012. It featured thirty contemporary women photographers talking about the women photographers who inspired them. Some were famous, some were not, but all were insightful and profound in their words and glorious images they kindly shared.

Some of the people featured were triple Pulitzer Prize winner, Ruth Fremson; the great photography writer, Vicki Goldberg; photojournalists Susan May Tell and Lisa Kahane; “Legendary Bushwick Photographer” Meryl Meisler talking about Via Wynroth, the first ICP Education Director who inspired her; Aline Smithson of LensScratch; and NYC legends, Flo Fox and ninety-nine year old Editta Sherman (“the Dutchess of Carnegie Hall”).

The project got a number of press mentions including:

  • 3rd Ward blog
  • Time Light Box
  • Elizabeth Avedon’s blog and Twitter feed
  • Red Dog Photography News
  • ICP Twitter feed
  • SVA Facebook and Twitter feed
