WIPI had a wonderful visit from Patrizia Pulga from Italy over the holidays. Patrizia has been a long time WIPI supporter starting with our 20th Anniversary Exhibition Tea Time. Shortly we will be providing a report about her recent lecture at Ovrvieto Fotografia Convention where she was invited to speak about European women photographers as well as Women In Photography International.
photo l.a. 2009 was fabulous at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, CA. Stephen Cohen did it again.. another successful photography event! The place was buzzing with collectors and photographers. Soon we will upload the story piece from The Photograph Collector on photo l.a. I really enjoyed meeting up with several of WIPI's current and past members. Maya Meyers was thrilled to purchase a signed book of Award winning photographer, Susan Meiselas. Susan was part of the series of conversation presentations with Charlotte Cotton of LACMA at photo l.a. Also met new member Christine Caldwell who's entrepreneurial spirit has led her to opening a RENTAL digital lab Translight Colors, they have a new self serve digital printer that prints 44 inches wide. (Epson 9800). Nice to see Joan Almond, a long standing WIPI Charter Member
keeps working on new projects.... YES.. we are now on Facebook.. and TWITTER,
still working out the details, We are listed on Facebook
as a FAN page for now, so join us and let us know who
you are. Still working out the details of TWITTER, we'll post
more when we grasp all there is to do....more passwords...!
the coming months WIPI will address many of the issues that face
women working in the photographic arts as well as commercial photography. The
economy, of course is on everyone's mind and pulling at their budget strings.
WIPI is a great place for members to expand upon their outreach and help to make
a more secure base to spring from. We hope that each member will take advantage
of the PhotoProfile Spotlight Gallery
as well as send in a story about themselves and their work. What is it you do
that may be different or unusual to bring light to your photography? how do you
balance family and work?
sure could use some helpful hands now and then, so if you would like to volunteer,
please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Focus on Peace
