Great list to be a part of!

8/100 women

DING DING DING ^^^

8% 

(FR) Ok. Plusieurs personnes ont attirĂ© mon attention lĂ -dessus. A juste titre. Pour l’index, je me contente de remonter la liste des gens que je suis, et je n’ai jamais pensĂ© Ă  vĂ©rifier la proportion de photographes femmes qu’elle contient. 8 % ? Je dĂ©sapprouve ce pourcentage, et pourtant c’est lĂ . A prĂ©sent, le mieux que je puisse faire est de me demander comment c’est arrivĂ©. 

Alors je suis allé voir ma collection de disques. Le pourcentage d’interprètes féminines est très bas, à peine plus élevé. 20%. Je préfère la musique à la photographie, secrètement j’aurai voulu être auteur-compositeur. Je sais pourquoi il y a autant d’hommes dans ma collection de disques, c’est parce que je m’identifie à eux. La voix, la voix est la chose la plus importante. Ma collection de disque est un prolongement de moi-même, un journal intime. 

Le même phénomène est à l’oeuvre ici. Ce n’est pas du sexisme, c’est de l’égotisme. De la projection. C’est à cause de la voix. 

Néammoins, ma collection de disques ne regarde que moi, alors que l’index des photographes est une collection soumise au regard des autres. Ca fait une grosse différence. C’est de là que vient mon erreur. Choisir et montrer des artistes publiquement, ce n’est pas juste comme partager ses goûts personnels. C’est bien autre chose. Il y a d’autres enjeux. La représentativité des femmes est l’un d’eux.

Je comprend tout ça maintenant.

(EN) Ok. Several people called my attention to it. Rightly so. For the index, I just go up the list of people I follow, and I never thought to check the proportion of women photographers in it. 8%? I disagree with that percentage, and yet it’s there. In fact I do not make the distinction, I do not care. Now the best I can do is ask myself how it happened.

So I went to see my record collection. The percentage of female performers is very low, barely higher. 20%. I like music and photography, I have secretly wanted to be a songwriter. I know why there are so many men in my record collection, it’s because I identify with them. The voice, the voice is the most important thing. My record collection is an extension of myself, a diary.

The same phenomenon is at work here. This is not sexism, it’s egotism. Projection. This is because of the voice.

Nonetheless, my record collection is my business while the index is a collection of photographers submitted to the eyes of others. It makes a big difference. This is where my mistake is. Selecting and showing artists publicly is not like sharing one’s personal tastes. It is quite another thing. There are other issues. The representation of women is one of them.

I understand all that now.

LoĂŻc

You recognized your mistake, so fucking fix it. Take it down and try again.

Not only their aren’t as many women on this list, but colored men/women are not even visible on this list either.
