17 Photographs Of Women, By Women

In this edition of the R29 Photo Album, we're celebrating women both behind and in front of the lens for International Women's Day.
Ahead, we asked female photographers to share one picture of a woman or of multiple women who mean something out of the ordinary to them. In portraits and details, from grandmothers, to mothers, to mentors, to muses, to best friends, wild friends and courageous activists, the results paint a beautiful picture of womanhood today.
