CELEBRATING WOMEN ATHLETES WITH ALANA PATERSON
Currently, women represent only 7% of sportspeople seen, heard or read about in the media. And only 4% of sports coverage focuses primarily on women. This must change.
We commemorate International Women's Day by sharing the following portfolio by photographer Alana Paterson. Alana's work consistently portrays strong, determined, smart, beautiful and unique women, showcasing their efforts, challenges, doubts, pride and joy. We celebrate you all.
Photographer Alana Paterson hails from Vancouver aka the "California of the North," a booming spot for indoor and outdoor activities year-round. For Alana this means rock climbing, yoga, skiing, running, weight training and skateboarding. As if that weren't enough, she also farms and is part of the Canadian Coast Guard auxiliary.
