In the beginning the idea for the show "31 Women in Art Photography" was a direct response to the increasing male domination in the New York art scene. I quickly thought back to every major gallery and museum I'd ever been to in NYC and realized that it is true, there are more works of art by males rather than females. Why is that? What's the difference between a photograph produced by a male than one by a female? Some would say the content of an image is just as important as the gender of the photographer. Now in its third year, both male and female artists are allowed to submit works, however the purpose of the exhibit is to create a voice for women in the New York Art institutions. “31 Women in Art Photography” will be on view at the Hasted Kraeutler Gallery in New York from July 26 to Aug. 17, 2012. These photographs are just a few featured in the show.
