To mark the occasion of International Women's Day Centenary 1911 - 2011, I thought it only right to draw attention to the world of Photography and the extraordinary women who have contributed to this medium and will continue to do so it all our wonderful ways.
What better way to celebrate than looking at the women who have helped shape Photography in an exhibition in MOMA titled, "Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography" which is on until the 4th April 2011. Works by Diane Arbus, Berenice Abbott, Claude Cahun, Imogen Cunningham, Rineke Dijkstra, Florence Henri, Roni Horn, Nan Goldin, Helen Levitt, Lisette Model, Lucia Moholy, Tina Modotti, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, and Carrie Mae Weems to name but are few that are on show.
I would like to thank these women and every other who is continuing to fight for what they believe in and produce beautiful work in an industry that is so predominately male. Congratulations and let’s continue!
