"There are more women working in the contemporary photo world then ever before. Their methods, choice of subject matter, visual language, and processes run the gamut of artistic possibility. What unites them is their passion and the effort they devote to creating extraordinary bodies of work. Women in Photography is a showcase for this work. It is also a resource for photographers, editors, curators, gallery owners, and viewers alike to discover and enjoy the work of female artists. By mixing the work of emerging photographers with artists that have achieved high levels of success within fine art and commercial worlds, the project is designed to open a visual dialogue and create a venue to share work, support, and ideas."I posted not too long ago about the incipient online showcase Women in Photography being coordinated by Amy Elkins and Cara Phillips. The passage above is their mission statement. While the site started with the unbearable narcissism of Elinor Carucci about which I have commented before  , they now (through tomorrow!) are featuring incredibly intimate, miniature landscapes by Sally Gall. So the trajectory seems positive to me and, in any case, this is an inspired undertaking. Submission guidelines and contact information appear on the WiP web page, linked above.
