In celebration of International Women’s Day 2018, we recognize that this year has become a time of awareness as women take a stand for change and respect.
The women photographers in this exhibition pay tribute to their practice through work that has more than their gender in common. Each one looks at their world and the world around them through the eyes of a woman, mother, lover, artist, friend and observer of the human condition. The artists, from students to career professionals, know they must fight for attention to become visible. Their subjects, from the figurative to the environmental, may also have been invisible or seemingly insignificant, but they are brought into view through the camera lens. Each artist raises questions about the nature of reality, humanity and individual identity as she captures its significance through the photographic process in remarkable ways.
