Good afternoon fellow photographers I have a question that I hope someone can help with,
My daughter is about to start "A level" photography here in sunny Yorkshire but really wants to go to New York (why she wants to leave Yorkshire is beyond me) and is looking for names of Female photographers who live in New York to be able to contact for advice.
Thanks for all your help,
Andy.

That's a tough one. Finding self-identified female photographers in New York City (NYC) is not straight forward. There are a lot of female photographers that work and show in NYC, but they live and work outside of the city.

It's not as though there's a Facebook page for female photographers in New York City. Wait, there is one for Black Female Photographers of NYC https://www.facebook.com/blackfemalephotogsNYC/ - maybe it's not as difficult as I thought.

There are hundreds of female photographers in NYC ranging from wedding photography to photo journalism to fine art. Your daughter should consider narrowing the her focus. The following were mentioned in articles on New York women photographers in the past year - Delphine Diallo (delphinediallo.com), Lucy Helena (lucyhelenaphotography.com), Nan Goldin (www.artsy.net/artist/nan-goldin), Kat Harris (www.katharrisweddings.com), Julie Skarrat (www.julieskarratt.com).

You might contact the photography curator for the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), they do a lot of photo exhibitions. Email their Photography Study Center and enquire about local female photographers (psc@moma.org). Ask for a contact for a curator of photography. There are several more museums in NYC that have curators of photography.

Of course there is the most famous NYC photographer, Annie Leibovitz. I don't have a clue how to contact her but she does have an Instagram account (@_annieleibovitz).
