Never Let Them Shoot Us Down
“Never Let Them Shoot Us Down” is a documentary style photo book that showcases a selection of the talented women in the Greater Toronto Area who specialize in concert photography. Capturing the energy of the bands playing on stage in their own unique ways, each photographer strives to create images that are interesting to the viewer and showcase the tone and emotions of the musicians. The book takes you through each photographer’s journey and experiences within the industry, including stories on how they started, a collection of their own images, as well as the struggles they’ve faced working in a male dominated industry. “Never Let Them Shoot Us Down” has been created to raise awareness of the sexism women often have to face in the photo pit, and to shine a light on the amazing work that is being created by these hardworking photographers.
