Art Streiber photographs “The Women of Hollywood” for the cover of The New York Times Magazine

Last Sunday’s edition of The New York Times Magazine explores “the pervasive sexism” in the entertainment industry that keeps women from running studios and directing blockbuster movies. For the feature, which was written by Maureen Dowd, the magazine asked Art Streiber to shoot portraits of 63 prominent women of Hollywood.

“Over six days in New York and L.A., we photographed as many women who make films and TV as we could,” explains Amy Kellner, the magazine’s associate photo editor. Art Streiber shot 63 directors, screenwriters, producers, cinematographers, and executives. This is not every woman working in Hollywood today. But these women, along with the rest of their peers, are making change in an industry that needs changing.”

“It was a huge honor and a great responsibility,” says Art of the assignment. “I wanted to portray our subjects as strong and forceful, while simultaneously communicating their individual character and humanity.”
