March is Women's History Month. The San Francisco Women Artists Gallery annually celebrates by holding their "La Femme" show. This year the juror is Priscilla Ontani, a partner of ARC Gallery in SF. She chose 60 pieces out of the 134 that were entered. I had two pieces juried into the show. Both of my photos are older and were shot on film. Oh, how I miss the film days! Nothing was more exciting than watching my image come to life in the developer!
The first one is "Got Cancer" which I took at the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade back in the late 90's. I feel that is a very powerful photo of a brave woman.
The second photo that was juried in is called "Moroccan Women". I shot this in 2002, while I was on a day trip in Morocco. I was vacationing in Spain at the time. The Moroccan people were not very open to having their photograph taken, as you can probably tell from the one women's facial expression.
The reception will be held on Wednesday, March 9th from 5:30 to 8:00 pm at the SFWA Gallery at 647 Irving St and 8th Ave.
