Today’s guest is Gulnara Samoilova. She’s an accomplished street photographer, founder and, curator of the Women Street Photographers Instagram feed. She is also an award-winning Associated Press photojournalist most notably for her photographs taken during the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York on 9/11.
Her work is part of major collections at venues like the Museum of the City of New York, The New York Public Library, New York Historical Society, The Akron Museum, 9/11 Memorial Museum, and Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Her photographs can also be found in several prominent private collections like Elton John and Steven Kasher. Plus her work has been exhibited in numerous one-person and group shows around the world. Impressive.
Gulnara will be the featured photographer in the March 2020 issue of Street Photography Magazine where we’ll learn more about her personal work.
But today she tells us about her passion to promote the work of other women street photographers. She does this by curating the Women Street Photographers Instagram feed and managing the traveling exhibition of their work. All of which keeps her very busy.
