Leica Women Foto Project
The Bind of Humanity
Fotografiska New York is proud to partner with Leica Camera USA on the annual Leica Women Foto Project Award, an initiative created by Leica Camera USA to encourage diversity and inclusion in visual storytelling and empower photographers to demonstrate the importance and impact of a woman’s point of view.
About the Project
As part of the Leica Women Foto Project initiative, Leica granted three photographers a cash award of $10,000, a Leica SL2-S camera set, and exhibition at Fotografiska New York. In addition to the Award, the initiative expanded to provide three mentorships in partnership with VII Agency. This year’s renown jury includes Amanda Hajjar, Director of Exhibitions at Fotografiska New York. The Leica Women Foto Project exhibition, The Bind of Humanity, is curated by Fotografiska New York, and will be on view this International Women’s Day through April 10, 2022.
Through the Leica Women Foto Project Award we are able to bring female-identifying voices to the forefront
