Light Journeys: Australian Women working in Photography


www.lightjourneys.wordpress.com

For many women working in photography, it is a journey like no other. In Australia, photography is still in the process of finding its feet, but in recent years Australian photographers have emerged to stand alongside internationally acknowledged artists. Although Australian photography throughout its history retains the hallmarks of originality and innovation, there have not always been the opportunities to show this work. For many women this has been compounded by familial responsibilities and the competitive endeavour that comes with being an artist.

So, taking our cue from and with the blessing of Women in Photography NYC, this virtual gallery aims to showcase the talent of Australian women artists working in the field of photo-media. Our intentions are to show the wired world selected works by these women and to create a focal point for artists, curators, galleries and enthusiasts interested in the development and culture of contemporary Australian photography.

Curated by Lee Grant and U.K Frederick with regular guest curators, a new artist, either emerging or established, will be featured with a solo online exhibition every two weeks.

Submissions are open to all Australian women working in the photographic medium. Light Journeys does not charge any fees. To be considered for the initial round, please email an artist statement with 5-8 jpeg images (72dpi, 1000 pixels wide and sRGB profiled) and re-title your images surname_firstname_number.jpg to lightjourneys@gmail.com no later than March 8th, 2009 (International Women’s Day!). Ongoing submissions are welcome and will be accepted on a rolling basis.

We look forward to hearing from you and of course… spread the word! In creating this site, we are looking to encourage support and dialogue (and not just amongst women) as well as the opportunity to get your work and ideas out there!
