The Honorary Chair of the Women in Photography group is Karen Knorr HonFRPS, internationally renowned photographer and professor of photography at the University for the Creative Arts, home to the research project Fastforward Women in Photography.
On the launch of the group in 2018, Karen said:
“I feel 2018 is a good year to launch the Woman in Photography group within the RPS. Echoing the objectives of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, it is time to break down barriers of exclusivity and to reach out to different communities, including BAME and LGBT+ , and to women’s movements in the arts world. I’m looking forward to heading up this new group and helping the RPS add its voice to the global discussion on equality.
