From the event website:

“Women In Photography is a new online venue showcasing work by contemporary female photographers and providing a vital platform for support and the exchange of ideas. Join WIP co-founders Cara Philips and Amy Elkins, alongside noted contributing photographers Robin Schwartz and Elinor Carucci, for lively discussion of their work and what it means to be a woman in photography today. Moderated by Laurel Ptak, Aperture’s Educational Programs Manager.


There are more women working in the contemporary photo world then ever before. Their methods, choice of subject matter, visual language, and processes run the gamut of artistic possibility. What unites them is their passion and the effort they devote to creating extraordinary bodies of work. Women in Photography is a showcase for this work. It is also a resource for photographers, editors, curators, gallery owners, and viewers alike to discover and enjoy the work of female artists. By mixing the work of emerging photographers with artists that have achieved high levels of success within fine art and commercial worlds, the project is designed to open a visual dialogue and create a venue to share work, support, and ideas.

Women in Photography is co-curated by amy elkins and cara phillips.

It will present a solo exhibition of work from select photographers every other Tuesday of the month.

We accept submissions on a rolling basis. If you are interested, please submit five (5) jpegs and a short statement from a body of work to: submit@wipnyc.org.

Please submit images @ 72 dpi, 550 pixels wide, sRGB, JPG format. Rename your images “myname_title.jpg, etc.” No zip files, please.
