Women In Photography Co-Founder Amy Elkins Exhibition Opening
Brendan, Brooklyn, NY. 2008 Amy Elkins
You may have seen photographer and WIP co-founder Amy Elkins speak on behalf of her initiative Women In Photography at Aperture’s recent Spotlight Discussion panel. If not go to Aperture/Live, view here!
Her ongoing series Wallflower investigates and confronts some of the cultural grounds underlying gender, opting to focus on the beauty, sensitivity and vulnerabilities found in a sex that has long been held to masculine expectations and stereotypes. For Elkins these portraits remain a personal and psychological delving into the other, finding the mannerisms of male role models in her personal life endlessly fascinating.
Opening Reception: Wallflower
