Twelve photographers from Magnum Photos are engaged in a visual and thematic dialogue with twelve photographers working globally in the field of editorial and advertising photography.

Photographing and moving in different spheres, they are recording and interacting with women in the larger world to highlight disparate subjects such as war, childhood, religion, sexuality and style while celebrating the complexity of the female experience.
