As New York Fashion Week wrapped, photographer Johan Lindeberg and Vogue Italia’s Editor-in-Chief Franca Sozzani celebrated a group of inspiring women from around the globe in a black-and-white portrait series titled Women of Integrity.

The series, which is showcased at Spring Studios, is meant to raise awareness about how women today have multiple important roles to play and are socially committed to fulfilling their duties to the community. “Integrity means when you are really committed to something you believe in,” Sozzani told

The project includes 16 women from 16 countries, including—Elif Şafak, a Turkish author; Princess Rym of Jordan; Shirin Neshat, an Iranian artist; Nadine Labaki, a Lebanese actress and director; Bahija Jallal, a Moroccan cancer research executive; Dora Bouchoucha, a Tunisian film producer; and Hiam Abbass, a Palestinian actress.
