"At first, artist Mica Angela Hendricks didn’t want her four-year-old daughter near her new sketchbook. She is serious about her art, and she knew little Myla would want to scribble all over the pages. Then, her daughter said the words that changed everything.
“If you can’t share, we’ll have to take it away.” "She had used her own mother’s words against her, and now Mica had no choice but to indulge Myla. She let her daughter finish one of her sketches, and pretty soon, they had a whole collection of collaborations."

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.

"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."

Marilyn’s focus as a photographer ranges from portraiture, still life, to societal examination.
