woven: women of vision.

here is an exhibition from some photographers on assignment for national geographic.

CLICK HERE:  WOVEN

the theme…. simply is … these photographers are all women.

often, the mantra is to equate.  gender, racial, social, etc … all in a struggle to be on the same level.  but fuck it.  lets just go ahead an put someone on top for a minute (or for a year long photo exhibition) and see how it feels.

for these photos …. it is nice to see who is behind the lens:

NPR’s jacki lyden interviews amy toensing and maggie steber,,, LISTEN HERE

 

when steber was asked if she felt there was a ‘different sensibility’ in her photos….

In a way, doesn’t matter if you’re a man or woman. It’s really more about how you connect with people and everybody does that in a different way. And I don’t think that you can look at a photograph and know whether it’s taken by a man or woman. But I do believe that we can get into things and in a different way than sometimes men can.

amy toensing on the woven exhibition, “You know, being a freelance photojournalist is a very independent, solo existence. So this has been, I think, for all of us, a really wonderful opportunity to get to know each other and feel some community”.
