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. [CMOA]

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.
