Women ‘Camera Operators’ - Photographers & Female Sight

As women “camera operators” (a 19th century term for photographers), aren’t we all struck by light?

Since the beginnings of photography in the mid-nineteenth century, women have had prominent roles as artists. The popularization of the medium in the first decades of the twentieth century met with a confluence of social forces, including art and activism, that expanded opportunities for women in both art and public life. Working in a range of styles, pioneering artists like Anna Atkins, Imogen Cunningham, Berenice Abbott, and Carrie Mae Weems forged independent perspectives that changed how we picture the world.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art created by or about women image-makers, including trans-women and femme/feminine-identifying, genderqueer, and non-binary lens-based photographic artists. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission. 

Guest Curator | Ellen Carey

Ellen Carey lives, teaches and works in Connecticut, after many years in New York (1979-1995), where she was born (1952). Ellen Carey is an educator, independent scholar, guest curator, photographer and lens-based artist. Her unique experimental work (1974-2021) spans several decades highlighted in 70 one-person exhibitions, several hundred group ones (1974-2022), publishing essays under Pictus & Writ (2008-2021) in tandem with multiple books, exhibition catalogues, lectures and interviews, plus reviews and grants. Ellen Carey named one of 100 top women photographers worldwide by The Royal Photographic Society. She emphasizes drawing with light, photography’s indexical; light with color, underscored in process and approach, is her performative record: a visual all - or - nothing; zero.

Eligibility:

The Sleepover is an international community art project that explores the significance of female gathering traditions.

Women of all ages and backgrounds are invited to share art inspired by their personal experiences with sleepovers, religious traditions, sewing circles, girl scouts, mehndi parties, baby showers, unique family customs--the list goes on! While the project team is based in Maryland, we welcome all US and international entries.

We're seeking visual art, memories, short stories, music, sound art, essays, videos, poems, physical objects, and multidisciplinary work. These will be curated for digital exhibition and serve as inspiration for an original theatre piece. The Sleepover is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council (msac.org).

Offerings may be shared by email, snail mail, or via our toll-free hotline through July 15, 2021.
