- Adventure, Foreign Worlds, Cultural History, and Human Interest
In a field dominated by men, five pioneering camerawomen, Mary Rogers, Cynde Strand, Jane Evans, Maria Fleet and Margaret Moth went to the frontlines of wars, disasters and revolutions to bring us the truth. As colorful as accomplished, they made their mark by capturing some of the most iconic images from Tiananmen Square to the Arab Spring uprising, but the world doesn’t know it was women behind the camera. In the midst of unfolding chaos, the pictures they took both shocked and informed the world. Maria, Cynde, Jane, Mary and Margaret took the images that defined history for their generation, yet their own stories have not been told, until now.
In the 1980’s and 1990’s, there were hardly any camerawomen covering international stories. Christiane Amanpour, “These camerawomen blazed a trail they didn’t even know they were blazing. They were just doing their job and they were doing it just as good or even better than the men out there.”
