In an image-obsessed culture saturated with social media, these 40 artists are using photography and the female gaze to redefine the fields of fashion, art, advertising and photojournalism, making a profound impact on our visual world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A startling and stunning book that offers a rich, varied alternative to the idea of the selfie as the contemporary feminist art form."-ELLE "As Girl on Girl makes clear, the female gaze offers a powerful lens through which to view, and better understand, the world."-Artsy "Jansen has curated a compelling group of photographers, asked difficult questions, and produced a beautifully illustrated book . . . [Girl on Girl] manages to be of interest to photographers and historians of photography while staying accessible to readers who are interested in learning about contemporary photography. It's definitely worth a read."-Jezebel "Striking in its breadth."-The Huffington Post "What Jansen's book smartly makes clear is that there is no singular female gaze."-ArtSlant "Women like those in Jansen's book are challenging female representation in visual culture, and perhaps with their ideas in mind, we can begin to challenge the current standards of female visual representation ourselves"-Creator's Project at VICE
