Women In Photography
International (WIPI) is gathering names and histories of 2000 women from
around the world for a biographical project that will mark the new
millennium as well as the heritage of women of photography.
This project will uncover, honor and celebrate artists and professional
women who have worked diligently at their craft, yet may have gone (for the
most part) unheralded or undocumented, says Jean Ferro, President of Women
In Photography International. Jean goes on to say, The nominations will
come form all disciplines and professions that women worked in to contribute
to the advancement of the photographic arts and sciences.
WIPI curator, author and photo historian Peter E. Palmquist will select the
first 100 women from the Women in Photography International
Archive. This will seed the project that will eventually evolve into a
book, an exhibition, as well as a lasting record of women in the field of
photography. All biographical information submitted will be incorporated
in to the nearly 27,000 files that are currently on hand in the Women in
Photography International Archive.
Established in 1981, Women In Photography International is not for profit
organization that is dedicated to the advancement of women in the
photographic arts. Their efforts are supported through educational
programs, competitions, lectures, awards, exhibits and sponsorships.
