WOMEN AT WORK

URBAN GALLERY GROUP SHOW

for SCOTIABANK CONTACT PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL

EXHIBITION DATES: May 3 to May 31, 2018

 

The work that women do is essential to society, yet it is still often under-appreciated, underpaid and undervalued, and in many cases undocumented. ‘WOMEN AT WORK’ at URBAN GALLERY for the 2018 SCOTIABANK CONTACT PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL celebrates women, and their contributions to the health, welfare and economy of their communities and the world at large.

THE PHOTOGRAPHERS

Dorothy Chiotti is an avid photographer, prolific writer and passionate equestrian.

Dorothy resides on a horse farm in Mono, Ontario, with her husband, horses, rough collies and cats

ERIN MCGEAN

Erin McGean uses analogue collage and digital photography to compare how working women are depicted in contemporary fashion magazines with those in vintage National Geographic.The irony: fashion is one of the few industries where women make more money than men. Erin lives in Oakville, Ontario, raising her family, teaching visual arts and practicing her craft.
