The SELFIES: Women in Photography exhibition ran from 15 June to 31 July, 2022 from a virtual gallery, allowing an opportunity for a global audience to view.
The exhibition reflects the great diversity within self-portraiture, traditionally driven by personal salvation, self-scrutiny or vanity; while feminist artists in particular have used the human body to express facets of identity such as gender, sexuality, race or ethnicity. With artists increasingly turning the camera on themselves during lockdown, the presentation provides an intimate snap shot of self-representation.
The Women in Photography Group is a special interest group with the objective of facilitating the celebration, education and collaboration of female and female-identifying photographers and is available to members of the Royal Photographic Society. The SELFIES call was open to members and non-members, with the selection panel including photographer Amak Mahmoodian; RPS Director of Development Tracy Marshall-Grant; RPS Women in Photography Chair Teri Walker; and Laura Noble, curator and founder of LA Noble Gallery.
