Portrait and editorial photographer Anita Corbin has made work celebrating women and exploring subculture across the last four decades. In this MPF artist talk, she will discuss two of her photographic projects – Visible Girls and 100 First Women Portraits.

“In 1980 as a 22 year old photographer I felt an irresistible drive to ensure that a generation of women were represented within a photographic genre almost entirely dominated by men. All around me the grass roots energy of subcultural tribes were being expressed through shaved head and scooter, mohican and musical taste, dance move and sexual orientation… I wanted our ‘Herstory’ to be as colourful and visible as these Visible Girls. Thirty six years later social media has helped me to find these original Visible Girls & revisit them in my contemporary new series ‘Visible Girls: Revisited’” – Anita Corbin

Launched in 2018 to celebrate 100 years of women’s right to vote, this work presents portraits of 100 inspiring, iconic and insightful UK women who are first in their field, ordinary women doing the extraordinary.
