During Women’s History Month, we celebrate the incredibly talented ASMP women photojournalists who blazed a trail and others who continue to blaze trails documenting the world around them.

Legendary women photojournalists who were members of ASMP include Dorothea Lange, Margaret Bourke-White, Mary Ellen Mark, Eve Arnold, and Berenice Abbott among others.

They are highlighted in the work of the team at Trailblazers in Light, a site established to acknowledge women photojournalists working in the film era prior to the world of digital cameras.

To learn more about these amazing women photojournalists and many others, go to  Trailblazers in Light.
