Amanda de Cadenet

photographer, entrepreneur, founder of Girlgaze
  • bio

    At the age of fifteen, Amanda de Cadenet became a host of two popular British television shows. At the age of nineteen, she had her first daughter, and they moved from the UK to LA. De Cadenet transitioned to photography and became the youngest woman to shoot a Vogue cover—ever. In 2012, she created and produced an interview series called The Conversation, candid discussions with notable women (Hillary Clinton, Alicia Keys, Diane von Furstenberg, Gabourey Sidibe, and GP, to name a few) about some of the things we care about most (i.e. love, career, health, family).

    Her latest project, Girlgaze, takes on the disparity in journalism between male and female photographers by supporting and encouraging a rising generation of female photographers—in part by creating spaces to showcase their work, and by offering annual grants.
