About This Book

#girlgaze is on a mission to close the gender gap by creating visibility and tangible jobs for girls behind the lens and this timely book, from photographer and media entrepreneur Amanda de Cadenet's visionary focus, features a beautiful and powerful collection of images capturing how young women perceive the world.

This inspiring must-have for feminists and creatives alike showcases the work of a diverse collective of female-identifying photographers mixing candid and formal photos of females living their lives: moments of significance caught in a fraction of a second at home, on the streets, remote countrysides, and in war-torn countries. Spirited, elegant, and inspiring, #girlgaze promotes and highlights the work of Gen Z female photographers from all walks of life and is a stunningly beautiful representation of the female gaze.

About the Authors: Amanda de Cadenet is a creative force with a lifelong career in media both behind and in front of the lens, as well as CEO and Founder of Girlgaze, a Los Angeles based digital media company that promotes and highlights the work of emerging female photographers and directors. Lynsey Addario is a Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist whose work has appeared in The New York Times, National Geographic, and Time magazine.

  • "...coming this October there'll be #Girlgaze: How Girls See The World, a beautifully curated collection of images, spanning the genres of intimate self-portraits and high fashion shoots to documentary photographs of war-torn countries."
    I-D Magazine

    "This collection of images taken by a new generation of women photographers weaves together candid and formal photos of women living their lives."
    Publishers Weekly

    "With Girlgaze's first book, Girlgaze: How Girls See the World, releasing this fall, and de Cadenet's own book, It's Messy: Essays on Boys, Boobs, and Badass Women following suit, we wanted to know more about what makes this founder and self-made woman tick."
    Girls and Glory

    "In her new book #girlgaze, a collection of photographs showcasing women from all walks of life, de Cadenet gives us a peek into what it's like to be a young woman today."

    "We have 2.8 million image submissions on Instagram to date, from girls around the globe, many of which are included in our #girlgaze book, launching early October from Rizzoli. The book is filled with images from our community, and is an indication of the incredible talent that is out there that we have connected with."

    "Shutterbug Amanda de Cadenet’s new book [#girlgaze] (Rizzoli New York, $35) does more than promote female photographers. With contributions from Sam Taylor-Johnson, Inez van Lamsweerde and Lynsey Addario, it inspires a new generation to close the gender gap."
    California Style Magazine 

    "The book showcases work from women around the globe. Filled with photos by mostly Generation Z women, de Cadenet sees the book as a reflection of how girls see the world in 2017."
