Exhibition
The history of photography has a long tradition of representing women as subjects but has less to say about women as artists. Today, the roles of women in photography are both behind the camera and in front of it. Who understands women better than women? The female perspective offers an important view of the many facets of womanhood and women’s role in society. This exhibition seeks women photographers who explore and celebrate the myriad ways that they render female-identifying subjects.

Our juror for Women by Women is Laurie Klein. Renowned photographer and educator, Laurie Klein, is regarded as one of the most influential infrared photographers in the world. Laurie holds a BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology and an MFA from Ohio University. Early in her career, Laurie studied with Ansel Adams. She is the author of Infrared Photography: Digital Techniques for Artistic Images, Infrared Photography: Artistic Techniques for Brilliant Images and Photographing The Female Form with Digital Infrared all published by Amherst Media and Hand Coloring Black and White Photography published by Quarry Publishers. Laurie teaches regularly at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, Maine Media, Peter’s Valley Center, numerous other schools and venues, and in her own boutique workshops.

Exhibition Details
35-40 selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music. Participating artists that can attend have the opportunity for a Portfolio Review by SE Center Director Michael Pannier on the following Saturday morning (reservations needed). Selected images must be matted and framed up to 20 x 24” to professional standards, white mat with simple black metal or wood frame unless prior approval has been obtained. The Center reserves the right to reject any piece not framed to our standards. To avoid shipping costs & headaches, the SE Center for Photography will print your photographs for you upon acceptance. For $15 per image, we'll print on archival paper and after the show either return the print to you ($15 additional for shipping, domestic only) or you may choose to donate the image to the Center's flat file for future access to collectors.
