Staley-Wise Gallery presents an exhibition celebrating women photographers from the fields of documentary and fashion photography. Twelve photographers from the legendary cooperative Magnum Photos are engaged in a visual and thematic dialogue with twelve photographers working in editorial and advertising photography.
Photographing and moving in different spheres, they are recording and interacting with women in the larger world to highlight subjects such as war, childhood, religion, sexuality and style while celebrating the complexity of the female experience.
Photographers included: Eve Arnold / Olivia Arthur / Lillian Bassman / Louise Dahl-Wolfe /
Bieke Depoorter / Carolyn Drake / Martine Franck / Toni Frissell / Sheva Fruitman / Isabella Ginanneschi / Pamela Hanson / Ruth Harriet Louise / Diana Markosian / Susan Meiselas / Sheila Metzner / Inge Morath / Genevieve Naylor / Priscilla Rattazzi / Cristina Garcia Rodero / Alessandra Sanguinetti / Marilyn Silverstone / Newsha Tavakolian / Deborah Turbeville / Ellen von Unwerth
“I feel there is something unexplored about women that only a woman can explore.”
Georgia O’Keeffe, 1925
