A CELEBRATION OF FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHERS

Hasselblad Heroines shines a light on female photographers as they make their mark in what has been typically referred to as a male-dominated industry. Initiated on March 8th, on International Women’s  Day, Hasselblad Heroines was created to focus on celebrating and highlighting the achievements of female photographers worldwide. Through weekly spotlights, each Heroine shares their experiences, tips, and inspiration with their Hasselblad to fellow photographers. Hasselblad will conclude the first installment of the 2019 series today with a total of nine featured female photographers.

Kamilla Hanapova is photographer based in St. Petersburg, Russia. Specializing in portrait, beauty and architecture photography, Kamilla is a 2018 Hasselblad Master.
