'Young female artists are using photography and social media to explore issues of female identity. This gorgeous book introduces 40 of them, in an investigation of photography and the female gaze.' - Eva Wiseman, Observer Magazine

 

Girl on Girl looks at how women are using photography, the internet and the female gaze to explore self-image and female identity in contemporary art.

 

A new generation of women is taking the art world – online and offline – by storm. In an image-obsessed culture saturated with social media, these 40 artists are using photography and the female gaze to redefine the fields of fashion, art, advertising and photojournalism, making a profound impact on our visual world.

 

Forty artists are featured, all of whose principal subject matter is either themselves or other women. Each is accompanied by a short profile based on personal interviews with the author, giving a fascinating insight into this exciting shift in female creativity.

 

Featuring work by: Juno Calypso, Anja Carr, Petra Collins, Isabelle Wenzel, Aviya Wyse, Jessica Yatrofsky and Pinar Yolaçan.
