Paris Photo is happy to announce the nomination of Fiona Rogers - curator of the Parasol Foundation Women in Photography at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London - for the Elles X Paris Photo program in 2023

« I am delighted to be invited to curate this year’s Elles platform at Paris Photo. This initiative is important to generate visibility and equality for women in art, and mirrors our own ambitions at the V&A to address the historic gender imbalance within our Photography collection and programming. I am looking forward to reviewing a diverse and eclectic selection of international photographers both past and present, and using the opportunity to champion women and other under-represented communities for a space at the table. »
