Joan Roth is an internationally acclaimed portraitist and American social documentarian based in New York City. Her powerful visual portrayals of the universal strength and beauty of Feminist activists, women who are homeless, Jewish women, Ethiopian Jews, and other subjects, as they exist, influence, and are influenced by a variety of cultural surroundings. 


From Ethiopia to Yemen, India and Israel, and back to the streets of New York - Roth’s remarkable life and photographic odyssey is a celebration of the strength of women around the world. She hopes that her work will allow people to see ourselves as the mirror to one another.
