Join Aperture’s Educational Programs Manager, Laurel Ptak, as she moderates a conversation about Women in Photography, a new online venue showcasing work by contemporary female photographers. Tuesday’s panel includes the site’s co-founders Cara Phillips and Amy Elkins, alongside noted contributing photographers Robin Schwartz and Elinor Carucci.
Robin Schwartz is one of the featured artists in the upcoming Aperture series Tinyvices. She is known for her imaginative photographs of her daughter, Amelia, interacting with exotic animals. Schwartz says, “photography gives us the opportunity to access our dreams, to discover the extraordinary…Amelia and I play out our eccentricities in worlds where she and animals not only co-exist, but also interact.” Learn more about Robin Schwartz here.
Elinor Carucci was featured in Aperture magazine issue 182. She was born in Israel but now resides in New York. Her autobiographical work has been exhibited internationally and she notes, “it was photography that allowed me to be able to step away, to see what was going on, even what is about to happen.” Learn more about Elinor Carucci here.
