“Through Her Eyes”
In the gallery of images that make up “Through Her Eyes” you will find for the first time in Utah a collection of photographs produced by 19 female photojournalists while on assignment in the state. We are seeking support for the first public exhibition and celebration of these women in the Lower Urban Room Gallery at the City Library (Salt Lake City) from May 16th- June 25th.
A generous donation of $35 will sponsor one image in the exhibition.
The names printed everyday under news photographs around the world belong to people whose craft so often illuminate the lives of those who are beyond our physical borders and personal boundaries. They are the names of the women and men who, in the midst of conflict and confusion try to capture moments that compel us to action or compassion or reflection.
But for all the balanced coverage that the best news organizations make a mission of seeking out and revealing, it is only in recent decades they've pushed for a gender equality within their own ranks. It was not until the early 1980s when the first female photojournalist was hired by the Salt Lake Tribune and women began to tell the story of Utah.
In this gallery of images that make up “Through Her Eyes”, you will find for the first time (in Utah) a collection of craft and vision as produced by 19 female photojournalists who take on the day-in day-out grind of minding the people's business.
