Photographing Protest: resistance through a feminist lens

Our new exhibition celebrates images by feminist photographers, who have used their cameras to support social change in Britain from 1968 to the present. 

Photographing Protest explores how women and nonbinary photographers, and those making work within a feminist context have shaped the representation of public protest. Posing a challenge to the male-dominated history of reportage, it explores how photographers have created alternative, feminist narratives. From sit-ins to street theatre, candlelight vigils to deportation campaigns, their images resonate across the generations in struggles for gender equality, social justice and civil rights.

The exhibition includes work by Fiona Alexander, Katalin Arkell, Angela Christofilou, Elainea Emmott, Sally Fraser, Melanie Friend, Sheila Gray, Sally Greenhill, the Hackney Flashers, Judy Harrison, Tessa Howland, Jess Hurd, Pam Isherwood, Loraine Leeson, Jenny Matthews, Michael Ann Mullen, Maggie Murray, Joanne O’Brien, Raissa Page, Angela Phillips, Brenda Prince, Mary Turner, Bex Wade, Janine Wiedel, Val Wilmer, Mo Wilson and Carole Wright.
