    My first solo exhibition opened today and will be up until July 29. This is a wonderful site for women photographers -- they are always looking for new work, so I want to encourage women on apug to apply. It's a great venue!

    Congratulations Ellen, I wish I could attend.
    Its funny though that the poster image, under the title "Women in Photography" has a very hairy man. :smile:
    Symbolic? Sarcastic? Unintentional? You tell me!

    Can I ask a silly question ?

    Why Women in Photography: Solo Exhibition

    I actually know why I so I don't really need to ask, but it's sad, wrong and needs changing. A former partner was part of IRIS a women's photography movement in the UK. The sad part is 10 years on nothing has changed.

    Congrats. Those are some awesome pix and I wish I could come see the show. Luckily there is a local show with a APUG guy in it, and I'll be able to go to that one.

    I'm still waiting for the day when either: 1. Male photographers are called "male photographers", or 2. Photographers of any sex are just called photographers. We can all dream, can't we?
