I received a lovely email a day or so ago from Kelly Hill suggesting some women photographers for Female Focus. As she went to the trouble to list so many I’m including her list of 21. Kelly is a photographer herself – I just checked – so I’ve also linked to her website (spreading link love). However, I’ve taken out women photographers who are no longer alive, for example Francesca Woodman, but will keep these names back for another grouping of women who are no longer with us.
As I just got back from Cardiff last night and am a bit bushwhacked, Kelly’s contribution couldn’t come at a better time. Some of these names have been in Hotshoe, others haven’t. Those that have been published in the magazine I’ll indicate with an * as I look through the back issues and will put the date beside them, so I don’t duplicate names.

HotShoe Gallery’s second exhibition launched on Thursday night with a group show featuring work by established and emerging female photographers: Karen Knorr, Melanie Manchot, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Anna Linderstam and Clare Strand. The following text by Associate Curator, Marthe Fjellestad, introduces the show.

“The opening of HotShoe Gallery earlier this autumn, in times best characterised as uncertain, celebrates our confidence in contemporary fine art photography. The perceived market slowdown has done nothing to stop the abundant creativity in London and elsewhere, nor take away the need for bold venues to show this off. The Gallery Director, Daniel Campbell Blight has taken a novel approach to running the gallery, choosing to collaborate with a range of Associate Curators to show fresh and inspiring talent. Not to say that HotShoe Gallery will ignore more established artists; this show sees work by Rut Blees Luxemburg, Karen Knorr, Melanie Manchot and Clare Strand in addition to emerging artist Anna Linderstam, winner of Hasselblad’s 2007 Victor Fellowship.
