It is quite possible that female photographers see women differently than male photographers do. How could they not? After all, women understand how it feels to be observed by men, often as an object. It makes sense that a woman behind the camera may employ photographing women as a way to subvert the male gaze or to explore the complexities of her gender.
Anyone with an interest in fine art photography can become a collector
Photography has come a long way since its inception and has established itself as a recognized and appreciated form of art. And although there still is some discussion in certain circles about where precise photography falls in the spectrum of art, it specifically during the last three decades has become an area of focus for art collectors and investors in art.
Are you an artist looking to exhibit your art and get exposure for your work? Are you trying to gain interest from collectors and make sales? If you want to exhibit and sell your art be it photography, painting, sculpture, multimedia, or textile arts, calls for entry can be a great way to gain exposure.
