From the Archives: 10 Lomography Interviews with Women Film Photographers4 17 Share Tweet
There's a lot to gain from reading artist interviews. By hearing about the art from their own point of view, we get to know more about their personal stories which adds a layer of humanity to their photos and chosen subjects, and helps their art come alive.
Last year, we listed five of many interesting interviews with women photographers we’ve published at the Lomography Magazine, in time for International Women’s Month. Now it’s time to continue the tradition, this time by looking at 10 interviews we’ve had the pleasure of bringing readers with incredible women film photographers.
