Photography has been historically dominated by men, and in certain areas, we still see low representation of women (e.g. the number of women who won World Press Photo accolades). Photography has a rich history of prolific and significant photographers, but here is a list of Caribbean female photographers you can find on Kraasimages.com.
1. Donnette Zacca
Zacca studied Graphic Designing at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, Kingston Jamaica, Fine Art Photography at The University of Cincinnati, Ohio and holds her MFA degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. USA.
She is a respected Jamaican Artist, Photographer and lecturer. Her professional work can be seen in Journals, Solo and group exhibitions, in hotels, books and private collections.
In 2004 Zacca became an invited artist of the National Gallery of Jamaica. In that same year her work was collected by that institution as part of the national collection. Donnette Ingrid Zacca is an influential lecturer, a lover of people and a Jamaican who greatly appreciates the history and landscape of her country.

3. Afiya Francis
A third culture adult who’s addicted to documenting memories. Belgium, USA, South Africa, Jamaica and Japan are all part of her upbringing and she considers them all home. “I’m a Trinidad and Tobago native who is constantly ticking countries and adventures off my bucket list. I have immersed myself in many different cultures but still maintained my Trini accent (or so I like to tell myself).” Afiya loves to hike, play football (soccer), eat great food, read, vlog and blog, play a mean game of taboo and inspire others to travel.
