Photographer Anita Corbin has spent the past 10 years taking pictures of 100 inspirational women. All of them are trailblazers, people who have been the first to do something previously only done by a man. Anita Corbin is a British photographer. Her collections and exhibitions include Visible Girls (1981) and First Women UK (2018). The National Portrait Gallery holds eight of her works.
‘It is my hope that women who dream big will look at these pictures and see that they are not alone.’ Anita Corbin
Discover and celebrate 100 pioneering women of the 21st century in this major exhibition by acclaimed photographer Anita Corbin. These striking images capture an impressive record of female achievement, from beatboxing to bomb detection, computing to cricket, blast furnaces to boardrooms.

VISIBLE GIRLS REVISITED
The original photographic series, Visible Girls by Anita Corbin portrayed the search for identity; the street-level self that was part of a tribe bonded by music, fashion and politics. 36 years later, Corbin’s Visible Girls: Revisited has called those original Girls back together, viewing those changed women through a modern lens.
