Ways of Seeing - Women and Photography in Scotland
Studies in Photography, in collaboration with the National Trust for Scotland and Glasgow Women’s Library have published the proceedings of the Ways of Seeing - Women and Photography in Scotland Symposium held online in October 2020
This publication marks an important step in telling the story of women engaged in the art of photography. It does justice to that long history, while also interrogating the erasures and absences that feature in institutional memories of the subject, through a wide range of research and practice-based responses. It discusses the rich history of women and photography and considers the meaning of images from the past. Above all, the essays collected here bring to light an impressive variety of social practices that sit alongside photographic methods, negotiated by women in front of and behind the lens.
