Professional Women Photographers (PWP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of women photographers. Through exhibitions, workshops and networking opportunities, PWP creates a dynamic and inspiring environment that encourages individual growth and promotes public interest in photography. Our monthly lecture series combines social networking with the opportunity to meet successful photographers and industry leaders who discuss their careers, artistic inspiration, and technical choices.
n the 1970s, there were few women in commercial or fine art photography, and opportunities for them to show their work were rare. All that changed in 1975, thanks to an exhibition at the Fashion Institute of Technology called Breadth of Vision: Portfolios of Women Photographers. It galvanized a group of women to form Professional Women Photographers (PWP), which provided camaraderie, strength and support for their professional and creative projects. In the 1980s and 90s, PWP published PWP Times and began to organize exhibitions. These include Women Photographers: New York/Tokyo, a joint show that traveled from Nikon House in New York to the Konica Gallery in Japan, and All Americans, a show that traveled in Europe and the United States in 1996. Today, while women have made tremendous strides, PWP members continue to enjoy the intangible benefits of mutual support, respect and encouragement that only a network of likeminded women can provide. With a wide range of lectures, workshops and exhibitions, PWP offers many opportunities for networking, creative development and professional growth.
