The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation is delighted to be collaborating with the new Parasol Foundation Women in Photography project at the V&A to present a special event celebrating this year’s winning title, ‘What They Saw: Historical Photobooks by Women, 1843-1999’ .
A symposium of editor, curator and artist presentations will take place on Wednesday 14th December at the V&A. Hosted by Fiona Rogers (inaugural Curator of the Parasol Foundation Women in Photography Project), an international group of participants will discuss their books, the challenges and joys of developing a project for publication and their practice more broadly.
The V&A Parasol Women in Photography project is an ambitious new curatorial programme which aims to address historic gender imbalances by foregrounding and sustaining women’s practice in photography and investigating the role women have played throughout the history of the medium.
Through a wide-ranging program of acquisitions, research, education, displays and public events, it will focus on international contemporary practitioners and gaps in the historic collection, complemented by a significant online presence to help reach and engage with new audiences.
