Getty Images today announces the launch of Subject, Object, Creator: The Female Gaze, a powerful new exhibition featuring 70 photographs of the female identity shot by women at the cutting edge of creative photography. Celebrating self-representation, the exhibition aims to communicate an honest visual truth about the nature of modern femininity.
The exhibition is a response to the groundswell of feminism which has been slowly and steadily growing for decades to be front and centre of political and social debate today with the #MeToo movement. Showcasing diverse viewpoints on the subject of ‘womanhood’, the curation includes Renaissance-style portraits from Stephanie Nnamani’s stunning ‘Black Victorian’ series alongside conceptual and documentary-style images. Vintage celebrity portraits complement archival images of women in industry during World War 2.
