Photography meets feminism: Australian women photographers 1970s–80s

Photography meets feminism: Australian women photographers 1970s–80s | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Robyn Stacey, Untitled, 1981

 

During this period of the late twentieth century, photography helped feminism and feminism helped photography. On the one hand, feminists used the highly informative and accessible medium of photography to raise awareness of critical social issues. On the other hand, photographic artists embraced feminist themes as a way of making their practice less esoteric and more engaged with contemporary life. This productive exchange between feminism and photography fostered a range of technical innovations and critical frameworks that radically transformed the direction of visual culture in Australia.

It’s a woman’s world at Bozar’s Summer of Photography | Flanders Today

It’s a woman’s world at Bozar’s Summer of Photography | Flanders Today | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

For women, photography was different, says Gabriele Schor, the Austrian curator of Bozar’s new exhibition, WOMAN: The Feminist Avant-Garde of the 1970s, which stands as the centrepiece of the fifth biennial Summer of Photography festival in Brussels.

 

According to Schor, when women took up photography and other new media in the 1960s and ’70s, it was an act of artistic emancipation. “For the first time in the history of art, the ‘image of women’ was being created by women,” she says.


WOMAN, a collection of 450 works – mostly photographs – by 29 European and American female artists of the 1970s, sets the tone for this year’s festival, which takes a penetrating look into the world of gender and how it is performed and experienced in different societies.

 

Spearheaded by Bozar and in collaboration with 36 partners, Summer of Photography spreads across 20 locations in the Brussels-Capital Region, representing more than 85 artists.

Until 31 August 2014.

Marilyn Sanders: Wo-Men Working

Marilyn Sanders: Wo-Men Working | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"I photograph to share what it is to be alive, an impulse so profound, that I sometimes feel as if images I’m making with my camera could emerge from my inner core as if I were a human camera obscura.- Marilyn Sanders – 2014."

 

Photographer Marilyn Sanders has been interpreting the world for nearly four decades, and today Lenscratch features a series that examines the roles of working women at a time when the Women’s Movement was just taking hold. Marilyn’s focus as a photographer ranges from portraiture, still life, to societal examination.  She works with analog and digital processes and her work is produced in silver gelatin and digital prints.

Photographers know it. If you post your work on a website like Flickr or 500px, chances are that it will be shared on social networks. This is great, of course, unless sharers "forget" to  give credit where credit is due or try to claim ownership of the shots.

Karoliina Paappa: The Girl and the Tiger

Karoliina Paappa: The Girl and the Tiger | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

The die-cut scraps from our childhood come to life in Karoliina Paappa's exhibition Tyttö ja tiikeri (The Girl and the Tiger). A tiger has escaped from the pages of a scrap album and landed in a Jugendstil apartment. A lush display of fruit and flower baskets, typical imagery in die-cut scraps, surrounds coffee-drinkers, as deer and cats keep them company. Paappa's works joyfully play with scale, colour and the intertwinement of daily life and illusion. Viewers feel the urge to become part of Paappa's magical and strange fairy-tale world.

Shutter Madness

Shutter Madness | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Garry Winogrand used to say that he took photographs of things to see what they would look like as photographs. He took a lot of them. He photographed relentlessly: crowds, zoos, dogs, cars, parties, sidewalks, train stations and women, always more women. He'd describe a good night as "thirty-five rolls." A good year might involve a thousand. He was always slow about editing. He had a rule that he wouldn't even look at an exposure for a year, so that emotion wouldn't cloud his judgment, but towards the end of his life he wasn't even doing that anymore. He just let his rolls pile up in trash cans and in the fridge.


When he died, of gallbladder cancer in 1984, he left behind more than half a million exposures. Most of them were unedited. Most of them he had never even looked at. Winogrand had always been prolific—but this was something else: three hundred thousand pictures (at a minimum), barely sorted, unorganized, with no indication of why or when they were taken.
