Join us for a robust discussion about the challenges and triumphs for women working in professional photography with five women from this year's Women in Photography 2017 Exhibition.

These women photographers will share their stories about getting their voices heard in an increasingly competitive environment, their opinions on working in an industry that continues to be dominated by men, and the realities of juggling a freelance career in photography from seeking grants and assignments to gallery representations.

WOMEN IN PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

Tue to Sat, 12pm to 7pm / Sun, 12pm to 4pm
Opening reception: 12 Oct, 7pm to 9pm

Issues of domesticity, familial ties, and feminine identity will be explored in the third edition of Objectifs’ Women in Photography group exhibition, which will spotlight the works of eight international women photographers.

The featured photographers are: Nancy Borowick, Gohar Dashti, Bieke Depoorter, Maika Elan, Sandra Mehl, Jannatul Mawa, Émilie Régnier, Bernice Wong.

The photographers’ subjects hail from domestic help in Bangladesh, to the impact of war on everyday life in the Middle East, to the homes of strangers across North America. Their intimate stories about specific communities deal with critical issues such politics, gender, sexuality, end of life issues, cultural identity and oppression. Through these images, these photographers make bold statements about the societies in which they live and work.

Women in Photography is part of Objectifs’ annual Women in Film and Photography showcase. The programme celebrates extraordinary and groundbreaking works by women photographers and filmmakers, highlighting the important contributions that women make to the arts. This exhibition is curated by Emmeline Yong.
