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.
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.
Recently I judged the photography competition for the Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts Exhibit. As the sole judge in the photo category this was an overwhelming task with over 1,100 entries that needed to be narrowed down to just 107.
