Women In Photography Celebrates Freedom - 1990-92

Jurors: G. Ray Hawkins, Glenna Avila and Suzy Kerr

Of the almost 500 photos entered, about 20% were from out of the country: Kenya, Bangladesh, Latvia, India, Sweden, Italy, Poland, Czechoslovakia and several republics in the former USSR.

Organized by Women In Photography, the international competition and exhibition was an opportunity for women photographers to present photographs depicting personal, political and environmental freedom, as well as a chance to celebrate and rejoice in the new era of emancipation and collaboration for peoples worldwide.In conjunction with the exhibition, the first of the lecture series "Women Behind the Images - 1992" was also held at the Los Angeles Photography Center (LAPC), January 1992.

There were 50 winning photographs representing 48 women.

Congratulations went to Judy Glickman of Cape Elizabeth, Maine and to Margaret Preissman of Beverly Hills, CA, each of whom had an image chosen by all three jurors. Seven women who were chosen for the exhibition had been winners in 1989, They are: Carolyn Berry, Linda Joseph, Carol Nye, Gisela Gamper, Judy Glickman, Susan Sapides, Althea Edwards and Janet Knott.

The exhibition opened at the Los Angeles Photography Center, January 25, 1992. The Exhibition Coordinator was Patty Donovan

Images from Women In Photography Celebrates Freedom - 1992 were displayed in the F2 Special Edition Winter 1992 Issue. This was the final edition of F2, and marked the closure of the organization until its rebirth with the premiere edition of Women In Photography International's F2-eZine and online galleries in November 1999 on www.womeninphotography.org

1989 The year of WIPI International . The inaugural opening at The Pacific Grove Art Center on the Monterey Peninsula, proved that WIP is no longer a group of California artists. With winning photographers hailing for the US, Canada, Thailand and Sweden, WIPI took the major step to becoming an international organization dedicated to promoting the visibility of women photographers and their work. Curated by Linda Bellon Fisher and designed by Cloyce Wall from Carmel, the opening reception was attended by over 500 people. In 1989 Jean Ferro's self-portrait work “Eye To Eye” was presented at Paris Photo Lab with additional support from A&I Color Lab and Fuji Photo Film, Inc. See Exhibitor List
