Extraordinary Women : Images of Courage, Endurance & Defiance, Hardback Book

Extraordinary Women : Images of Courage, Endurance & Defiance Hardback



Typical warzone coverage has two focuses. The fighters, predominantly young men; and the victims - everyone else.

This book calls this familiar narrative into question.

Without glamorising or sanitising the harsh realities of our world, it presents the endurance and iron will of women in situations of war, poverty and hardship. Throughout his career, award winning photographer Tom Stoddart has shown us the remarkable resilience of all sorts of people from across the world.

With Extraordinary Women, he hones his focus on the female perspective.

His photojournalistic approach travels through the recent decades, with images displaying courage and freedom, the working lives of everyday women and the frontline of war. Each photo serves as a testament to the agency and strength of those who are so often portrayed as vulnerable and helpless.

Tom Stoddart has built a reputation for compelling work, and this collection is especially remarkable for its uncompromising celebration of humanity.
