Resum de la ponència
The conference at Escola d’Art d’Olot has focused on women photographers. With the aim of making visible ourselves in an eminently masculinized sector, we have gone through the work and careers of several classic and contemporary photographers. In addition, we have discussed the relevance that women photographers have on a professional level.
Women are an indispensable agent in the history of photography and, with this talk, we wanted to emphasize the legacy we are leaving in the image field.
Moreover, there has been a debate beyond the photographic world which we believe has enriched the activity. Collectively, some reflections on the reasons for this invisibility emerged, pointing to the structure of the patriarchal system as the principal source of discrimination.
