WAYS OF SEEING: Women and Photography in Scotland

© Ilisa Stack

We’ve teamed up with National Trust for Scotland, Glasgow Women’s Library, and the Trust’s Tenement House to create a two-part exhibition, Ways of Seeing, spotlighting Women and Photography in Scotland, in response to the National Trust for Scotland’s Second Morton Photography Symposium.

The first exhibition will be as part of National Trust for Scotland’s Second Morton Photography Symposium, to be held on Thursday 02 April 2020 at Glasgow Women’s Library (with an evening reception from 5-7pm)

The second exhibition will run for two months from 01 May – 30 June at the Tenement House, Glasgow. With an opening reception event on Friday 01 May 2020.

 

Through Ways of Seeing, Shutter Hub aims to bring together the work of women photographers in, and from, Scotland, and asks them ‘What are you looking at now?’

 

We are looking for standalone, and series of, images to exhibit, and you can submit work on any theme. To be eligible for these exhibitions you must identify as a Scottish woman, a woman with Scottish heritage, or woman living in Scotland.

All work will be considered and as always, we’ll aim to share as much as we can. We are especially interested to see work that relates to the Second Morton Photography Symposium themes (which you can find here).

We’ll be using the Shutter Hub signature newspaper-print style and teaming up with Newspaper Club to print both exhibitions (to get an idea of what this can look like check this out, and this). We’ll also be projecting images at Glasgow Women’s Library so we can ensure we show as much work at the symposium as possible.

 

National Trust for Scotland’s major photographic collections feature many women as takers, collectors, preservers or subjects. These photographs show Scottish women in many lights – artist and model, wife and socialite, mother and sister, amateur and academic.  

The images of these women breathe life into our places and can help institutions like the Trust improve at putting women of all backgrounds at the centre of the stories we tell about our history. The aim of Ways of Seeing is to explore how photography is used to tell women’s stories.’

– Ben Reiss, Morton Photography Project Curator, National Trust for Scotland
