The “Silent Generation” List :

Women in Photojournalism from the Film Era — the next phase, housekeeping and logistics.

Part One: How The List Took Root

As you know I have been working on a list of women photojournalists from the film era: the “Silent Generation” project, I have titled it.

Part Two: The List Lives

The names on this list (scroll down) have been sourced as best as I can and pegged to the year individuals entered the profession which technically means after college, not including internships, using readily available public data from photographer’s websites, Linkedin profiles, past published interviews, and in many instances, I contacted people directly. Any corrections, Please email:

Part Three: Testimonials

I am collecting testimonials from women who are on this list. We have many common experiences from working on a daily basis in newspapers, magazines, wires, photo agencies and out in the field, including experience with editors and editors working with photographers.

Part Four: Two Choices of Deadlines for Testimonial:

1. We may use excerpts of the testimonial on The List website, if you want to be considered for the website, please submit it by July 1, 2019 or earlier. Right now, we are unsure of the space so not sure how many or how much will be included but get it in soonest.
