The history of photography has a long tradition of representing women as subjects but has less to say about women as artists.
Today, the roles of women in photography are both behind the camera and in front of it. Who understands women better than women? The female perspective offers an important view of the many facets of womanhood and womens’ role in society.
This exhibition seeks women photographers who explore and celebrate the myriad ways that they render female-identifying subjects.
Color or monochrome, analog, digital or antique processes, female photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.
All photographers regardless of location, age or skill level. Images previously selected for exhibition at the SE Center for Photography within two years of the current exhibition are not eligible.
$35 for up to 5 Images, $6 for each additional image up to 10. Members, $28 for up to 5 Images, $5 for each additional image up to 10.
Our juror for Women by Women is Kat Kiernan. Kat is the Editor-in-Chief of the photography magazine Don’t Take Pictures, as well as the Director of Panopticon Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts. Her writings have appeared in numerous publications, most recently in the book The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life (Intellect Books, 2017).
