Established in January 2011, Firecracker is an online platform dedicated to supporting and showcasing talent of women photographers across Europe.
The project's founder is Fiona Rogers, who also serves cultural and education coordinator at Magnum Photos in London. She says that "despite many fantastic women working with photographic media, the industry continues to be dominated by their male counterparts," and it is out of this frustration that Firecracker was born.
Rogers first introduced the live Firecrackers events in March when she brought together Tessa Bunney, Laura Hynd and Leonie Purchas. Now, she's bringing Polly Braden and Kate Hooper together to talk about their street photography practices.
Both photographers will also be presenting new work at the 12 July event, which takes place at the Centre for Creative Collaboration in London.
