2014-03-18/Comments Off on Fourteen Female Photographers You Should Know Right Now…
PhotoShelter have put together a great article, highlighting fourteen outstanding female photographers and their work. Of course, this list is not exhaustive, we could add plenty more – specifically female mobile photographers that you should know now. Nonetheless, the creativity, style, ingenuity and integrity of these photographers is second to none.
Perhaps, the one that hits home most to me, is the the work by New York based Sara Naomi Lewkowicz. ‘Sara rose to prominence with her domestic abuse essay in Ohio entitled “Shane and Maggie” while pursuing a Master’s degree at Ohio University. Like Donna Ferrato’s work from a generation prior, Lewkowicz bore witness to the often hidden violence that permeates segments of domestic life, and captured important images while re-opening the question of when should a photographer intervene. Her stunning work won the 2013 Ville de Perpignan Rémi Ochlik Award and the 1st prize stories for Contemporary Issues at the 2013 World Press Photos Awards’.
Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said.
Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London.
Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art.
Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles.
