Join Elizabeth Ransom this winter as the Photographic Center Northwest continues their Conversations on Photography series to help create community and a forum for critical discussion of contemporary photography. Over this four-part series, artist and educator Elizabeth Ranson will introduce participants to contemporary issues facing women in photography today. With guest speakers from leading global organizations on women in photography, seminars, case studies, lectures, and panel discussions, this workshop will celebrate the inspiring work of women working with photography. You will take a closer look at some of the leading artists who are impacting the art world with their thought-provoking work, as well as challenge antiquated ideals of photography. This series will also explore the implications of the patriarchy on women photographers, and critically analyze photographic histories from a global perspective.
