‘Shining Lights’ is the first critical anthology bringing together the innovative work of black female photographers active in the UK in the 1980s and 1990s, providing an illustrated overview of a significant and neglected chapter in the history of photography. Viewed through the lens of Britain’s socio-political and cultural contexts, the publication draws on both lived experience and historical investigation to explore the communities, experiments, collaborations and complexities that defined those decades.

The fifty-seven photographers included include Maxine Walker, Ingrid Pollard, Claudette Holmes, Mohini Chandra, Carole Wright, Sutapa Biswas, Maud Sulter, Brenda Agard, Anita McKenzie, Mitra Tabrizian, Poulomi Desai, Virginia Nimarkoh, Nudrat Afza, Merle Van den Bosch and Eileen Perrier.
