Even the 'Kodak Girl' commercials, confined women's use of a camera to a hobby as it was their duty to be the memory keepers of the family.They were not to experiment with photography as a tool of documentation or a space of self-expression.
The perception of women as a subject has also changed over time. Up until the 1960s and 70s society saw women only as mothers and wives, confined to a very specific role.
Yet, since the dawn of time, they never ceased to transfigure - through their actions or words - our society. From the very beginning of photography, they never relented escaping from the societal norms to question and document the world.
This 23rd edition of AAP Magazine sought, not only to acknowledge the strength, beauty and resilience of women around the world, but also their artistic poetry and talent as demonstrated by the 19 women photographers selected.
The 25 artists chosen for this edition, regardless of gender, gave us - though their different approaches and techniques - a powerful tribute to women.
Selecting the winners was certainly not an easy task, but overall, we hope you will all enjoy this beautiful collection of amazing images of women.
