The annual Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs is a tribute to the artists, photographers and filmmakers who have created works that tell stories with impact, break boundaries and inspire us.

In this 2nd edition of Women in Photography, documentary works by 18 women photographers take centre stage. We are delighted to co-present this edition with the Magnum Foundation. Originating from countries ranging from Egypt to the Philippines, Jordan to Singapore, many of these photographers have overcome or worked in difficult circumstances to documenting the lives of the disenfranchised and marginalised by creating unique and powerful visual narratives. From works that reveal intimate domestic struggles, to observations of communities, to universal stories of humanity and empathy, these stories reflect the diversity and complexity of the issues and themes explored by women photographers in recent years.

The featured photographers are associated with the Magnum Foundation, having been recipients of the foundation’s Emergency Fund, Human Rights Fellowship or Arab Documentary Photography Program. Established by the renowned Magnum Photos, the foundation champions in-depth, independent documentary photography that fosters empathy, engagement, and positive social change.
