has been the 25th Anniversary year for WIPI. It all started in September 1981
when a small group of women came together to share their photographs and begin
to realize a career in photography was the direction and goal of their future.
Today, many of those women have continued and created programs as scholars, independents
and artists. We are happy that over the years, many of the women have returned
in various positions and many of their photo careers have expanded and they have
received incredible recognition for their work.
Silver Slide Show is fine example of B/W and alternative images that are part
of the Kodak.com Classic photo book project. Also see the Exhibitor
list of both the Juror 100 and Honorable Mention. Our jury of fine professionals
chose a selection of incredible work. We are grateful for their contribution to
WIPI and Turing Silver.
