RAW / 30 Under 30 Women Photographers
RAW / Projection + Exhibition

Liza Shchegolkova

Artpil proudly announces our entry in the 4th edition of RAW / Rome Art Week, presenting this year’s selection of our annual 30 Under 30 Women Photographers with an online exhibition continuing through December 11, 2021.

Founded in 2010, 30 Under 30 Women Photographers has helped emerging, mid-career, as well as some accomplished women photographers to gain further exposure and participate in the collective among peers. With styles ranging from art photography to documentary, portraiture to street and fashion, the works have been overwhelmingly well received.

Previous groups have exhibited in Paris and Lille (2018–2019) in partnership with Maison Photo at Maison de la Photographie and Galerie Claude Samuel, as well as in Rome (2017) in collaboration with CultRise and Dude Magazine. With the global pandemic and the impact it has had on artists and the art industry at large, last year’s group 2020 gave occasion to launch Artpil’s online viewing room. This year promises further exposure and an expanded audience for the 2021 group as we participate in Rome Art Week with an artist reception and projection at our Rome location running in parallel with a full online exhibition.

Among the growing list of photographers in the collective, many have come from or have gone on to join agencies such as Magnum or Hans Lucas, and organizations like ICP / International Center of Photography. Many are winners of LensCulture and World Press Photo awards with representation in festivals such as Les Rencontres d’Arles, Circulation(s), and Voies Off. Publications include Aperture, The New York Times, and Photo Vogue, and several of the photographers have continued to contribute their series to Artpil, including Benedetta Ristori (2017) Being HumanJulie Hascoët (2017) Mexican Journal; Sarah Blesener (2018) Toy SoldiersEkaterina Anchevskaya (2018) Forgiving and I Remember Nothing; and Laure d’Utruy (2017) with Tempohome and The Royal Road: In Transformation.

In photography, the traditional place for women is in front of the lens. Whether we like to admit it or not, is by and large a male-dominated arena, where the looking is a masculine act, and the subject is feminine, playing the role of looked-at and admired mainly for their outward appearance. Photography, then, has been a mirror for conventional gender roles in western society. What is it like, then, to be a female photographer, to be a woman who has seized hold of an instrument of which she traditionally remains in front, and to use her eye to view the world, rather than use it to throw back a soft, muted glance into the receiving end of a male gaze? It may sound primitive to talk of the female photographer in such a way, but as the photographers of 30 UNDER 30 women will undoubtedly profess, resistance – or discrimination, even subtle – can be common even today. We will each have our own stories of how being a woman has hindered, or even unfairly aided, our pursuit of this profession. One might say that looking at the work of 30 female photographers is positive discrimination, and so it is, to the necessary extent where a focus is placed on the work of women, whether or not you view their work as intrinsically female or feminine – or simply human.

– Natalie Dybisz (Miss Aniela / 2010)
