Women Photographers

The Royal Collection contains many photographs taken by women photographers.

Olive Edis (1876–1955)

Olive Edis was a successful studio portrait photographer and one of the first women to adopt the autochrome process.

In March 1919, Edis was granted permission to photograph on the Western Front. The commission established her as the first British women to be employed as an official war photographer. In France, Edis captured the destruction of war in poignant images of ravaged landscapes and deserted towns.
