Fixation at the Frontline Club – Women Photograph – What We See launch
March 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm£15
On International Women’s Day 2023 Fixation is proud to host at the Frontline Club a panel of photographers from Women Photograph collective for the launch of their first book What We See | Women & nonbinary perspectives through the lens.
From documenting major events such as 9/11 to capturing serially misrepresented communities, this book presents a revisionist contemporary history: pore over 50 years of history in 100 photographs. Each image is accompanied by 200 words from the photographer about the experience and the subject, offering fresh insights and a much-needed perspective.
Our panel includes:
Citlali Fabián (Mexico, 1988) is a Yalalteca, a Mexican indigenous documentary photographer.

Citlali is a 2020 Visura mentee, Magnum fellow, England Art Council Grantee, National Geographic Society explorer, a National Geographic Society Covid-19 Emergency Fund Grantee, and 2023 World Press Photo Contest jury member.
