Founded by Polly Irungu, and launched in July of 2020, Black Women Photographers (BWP) is a global community, directory, and hub of over 1,500 Black women and non-binary identifying photographers, spanning over 60 countries and 30+ U.S. states.
Black Women Photographers is a home for Black women to receive proper recognition, and most importantly, get hired. Dedicated to providing a resource for the industry’s gatekeepers, BWP supports its members through promoting their work in an active database distributed to photo editors, directors, curators, and art buyers. The collective also offers an annual $50K grant fund, free educational resources such as regular programming of photo walks, webinars, workshops, trainings, and portfolio reviews.
BWP is committed to providing an abundance of professional and personal growth for Black creatives worldwide through community, conversation, workshops, educational resources, virtual and in-person events, and an active directory of photographers available for hire.
