Philadelphia Chapter Event: National Gallery of Art in DC- Behind the Camera

Philadelphia Chapter Event:  National Gallery of Art in DC- Behind the CameraThursday, November 18, 2021, 11am‑4:30pm EST
Location: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
Registration Deadline: Thursday, November 11, 2021
All Attendees: $5





Join us for a trip to the National Gallery of Art to enjoy, among other exhibits, its new special exhibition Behind the Camera. Women actively participated in the development of photography soon after its inception in the 19th century. Yet it was in the 1920s, after the seismic disruptions of World War I, that women entered the field of photography in force. Aided by advances in technology and mass communications, along with growing access to training and acceptance of their presence in the workplace, women around the world made an indelible mark on the growth and diversification of the medium. They brought innovation to a range of photographic disciplines, from avant-garde experimentation and commercial studio practice to social documentary, photojournalism, ethnography, and the recording of sports, dance, and fashion.
