209 Women Exhibition

To mark 100 years since some women achieved the right to vote, an all-female photography initiative has created new portraits of the UK’s women MPs, shot exclusively by women photographers. FORM Collective members, Becky Warnock and Joanne Coates created original portraits of selected MPs as part of this important initiative. These will be displayed in a free public exhibition at Liverpool’s Open Eye Gallery, opening 28th February. 

‘209 Women’ is a national artist-led project to celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage and champion the visibility of women, particularly in environments that are still largely male-dominated. A collective of 209 women photographers from all across the UK has formed, volunteering their time to make and mark history.

The exhibition launched in the Houses of Parliament on December 14, 100 years to the day since the first women voted in a UK general election. There will be a public opening event for its launch at Open Eye Gallery on 28th February at 6PM, and the free exhibition will run until 14th April.

Introducing Landform

Our very own Cath Stanley has been working hard to create a brand new photography network - Landform. Developed to promote and support the work of female landscape photographers. Through social media, meet ups at various locations around the UK, photowalks, portfolio/work reviews, workshops and possible exhibitions, Landform aims to support others in their practice and engagement with landscape. Bringing female photographers together, of all levels and abilities, Cath wants to encourage a supportive group, to share good practice
and skills, whilst exploring new areas within the landscape as a group.

Cath has been chatting with Photograd about what motivated her to start Landform and how you too can get in involved.
