Grace Robertson is one of the most significant women photojournalists. At the beginning of her career in the 1950s, she used the pseudonym Dick Muir. The daughter of a Scots-born 'Picture Post' writer, she worked for the magazine before its collapse in 1957. 'Picture Post' was one of only a handful of publications employing freelance women photographers on a regular basis. However, as Robertson later recalled, she was sometimes sent to cover topics purely because she was a woman. More recently she has written and lectured on the role of women in photography. In 1999 she was awarded an OBE.
