Pioneering Women Press Photographers
Alma Haag, Ellen Dahlberg and Ragnhild Haarstad

During the 20th century in Sweden, a few women at various newspapers defied the social mores and proved that it was possible to occupy a prominent position in the profession. With extreme presence and sensitivity, their images captured some of the crucial moments, people and events of the age and they were widely disseminated in newspapers. Pioneering Women Press Photographers presents three of these photographers: Alma Haag, Ellen Dahlberg and Ragnhild Haarstad. Together they span almost a hundred years of press photography.
