BJP’s new exhibition takes place in a converted Brooklyn townhouse, reflecting the award’s domestic focus
Female in Focus
“Nothing about the experience of motherhood is linear. It is complex, raw and messy,” says Freeland, one of the winners of Female in Focus 2021
The exhibition, which closes this Saturday 26 February, features the work of series winners Jodie Bateman and Paola Jimenez Quispe
The series comprises archival images, unpublished works from her late father, and reflections on loss and mourning
The two-day event is the first convening of female photography organisations, curators, artists and directors from around the world, and includes 1854’s Female in Focus exhibition
Jodie Bateman, Paola Jiménez Quispe, Imogen Freeland and Joanna Helena are among the winners of BJP and 1854’s 2021 Female in Focus award, with the exhibitions sponsored by MPB, celebrating women’s contribution to contemporary photography
In the final session in our Female in Focus mini-series we approach an underrepresented topic in the art photography world: Motherhood.
With Female in Focus 2021 in its final two weeks for entries, we have curated a Female in Focus x 1854 Presents mini-series spotlighting voices of leading women photographers and industry figures across the world.
