For many women working in photography, it is a journey like no other. In Australia, photography is still in the process of finding its feet, but in recent years Australian photographers have emerged to stand alongside internationally acknowledged artists. Although Australian photography throughout its history retains the hallmarks of originality and innovation, there have not always been the opportunities to show this work. For many women this has been compounded by familial responsibilities and the competitive endeavour that comes with being an artist.
The Light Journeys gallery showcases the talent of Australian women artists working in the field of photo-media. Our intentions are to show the wired world selected works by these women and to create a focal point for artists, curators, galleries and enthusiasts interested in the development and culture of contemporary Australian photography.
