Women's Work: A Different Lens
Experience the world through a different lens.
March 06, 2020
Running in line with International Women's Day, Women's Work: A Different Lens is an exhibition celebrating the work of 21 women photographers from the Advertising and Illustrative Photographers' Association (AIPA).
The exhibition running over four days at the Ellen Melville Centre is an opportunity to explore the female gaze as an alternative to the ubiquitous male perspectives that tend to dominate commercial and advertising photography.
The 41 images from photographers including Mara Sommer, Sara Orme, Victoria Baldwin and others embody a wide range of themes and styles. Each photographer has her own unique approach to her work, yet together these images represent a distinctly female viewpoint.
On International Women's Day (Sunday, 8 March) a panel discussion will bring together artists and industry professionals to discuss issues around the gender imbalance in the photographic industries. The conversation between photographer Sara Orme, Isobel Kerr-Newell of Saatchi & Saatchi, Geraldine Turney of Match Photographers, and Dr. Kaisa Wilson of Gender Tick promises to be lively and informative.
