Bella N.'s Work Featured in Annenburg Space for Photography in L.A.
This past summer we featured Bella N., whose photography won the Girlgaze competition and was featured in Teen Vogue. Bella's work is now being featured in the Annenburg Space for Photography in LA, now through February 27, 2017!
The Girlgaze project helps support young female photographers like Bella through exhibitions, publications, and grants. The website of the Annenberg Space for Photography describes the Girlgaze exhibit thusly:
#girlgaze: a frame of mind is an interactive, digitally driven exhibit for all ages that maps the imaginative landscape of young, female and trans-identifying photographers from around the world. Largely sourced through social media, the curated images’ raw vitality is their only constant – female, WOC, and trans-identifying perspectives are presented on everything from identity and standards of beauty to relationships, mental health and creativity. While viewing these stunning, never-before-exhibited images, visitors will have the opportunity to create and share their own photos on social media.
The exhibit curators are Girlgaze, a collective founded by the famed British-born television host, women’s advocate and photographer Amanda de Cadenet. Girlgaze began as a social media movement with over 450,000 submissions on Instagram and has grown into the first multimedia platform to support girls behind the camera. In addition to its digital showcase for images, Girlgaze provides a larger ecosystem supporting the work and careers of fledgling female and gender-nonconforming photographers, artists and creatives, from providing grants to securing jobs.
