Looking Back - starting 1981


Along with memories of triumphs and travel comes the realization as of 2011, WIPI is celebrating its 30th ANNIVERSARY.
Three decades!!

See Pictures and letters from Founders

1981 - Created and obtained non-profit 501.c.3 educational status... since the 1st WIP Members Exhibition at the Cityscape Photo Gallery in Pasadena, July-August 1981...

1982 - Mary McNally presented her “Historical Survey of Women Photographers," Sept. 1982.

1983 - Eve Arnold, with the help of the Vivitar Corporation, spoke to WIP while in LA promoting her book, In America, at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre, 1983...

1984 - WIP Program “People Who Hire Photographers”, which featured 6 art directors from major agencies, consumer stores and magazines, May 1984...

1985 - Linda Wolf took on the task of coordinating the 1985 WIP Workshop Series, which featured “Shooting Fashion” with Orah Moore; “Handcolor Photographs” with Elfie Wilkins-Nacht, “establishing a Professional Photography Business” with Deborah Roundtree, and “Creating your own Portfolio” with guest lecturers David Fahey from the G. Ray Hawkins Gallery, Leigh Weiner, photographer , and Dan Wolfe, advertising photo illustrator. Lecture series were held at the Los Angeles Photographic Center under the direction of Glenna Avila from 1985-1988.

1985 also marked the first juried, biannual exhibition Women Photographers in America 1985 exhibition organized
by photographer E.K.Waller. It resulted in such an expansive show that it was held in two venues:'The LA Photo Center and The Women's Building.

1986, Presented several programs beginning with the educational “getting Your Work Shown” lecture by Josine Ianco Starrels and followed by “An Evening with Victoria Pearson," LA's leading fashion photographer.

1987 Another major competition. Curated by E. K. Waller and assisted by WIP's new Director, Nancy Clendaniel. “Women Photographers in America” was presented at the LA Municipal Art Gallery, and included fine art images in many sizes and shapes - even leaping into three-dimensional forms. Judy Coleman presented her unique self-portrait imagery at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, and Linda McCartney was the first of our Distinguished Photographers to receive her portfolio award in the made-for WIP custom leather case designed by the NY portfolio maker Brewer/Cantelmo.

1988, Mary Ellen Mark was nominated for WIP's Distinguished Photographer Award. We also presented the program “Getting Published," a collaboration between publisher Maureen Michelson, NewSage Press and photographer Kenna Love whose work was featured in the NewSage book EXPOSURES: Women and their Art. We closed the year with a spectacular program presented at Paris Photo Lab/LA by Maria Piscopo on “Marketing & Self-Promotion."
WIP transitioned from Women In Photography to Women In Photography International.

1989 The year of Women Photographers In America 1989 The inaugural opening at The Pacific Grove Art Center on the Monterey Peninsula proved that WIP is no longer a group of California artists. With winning photographers hailing from the US, Canada, Thailand and Sweden, WIPI took the major step to becoming an international organization dedicated to promoting the visibility of women photographers and their work. Juried by Val Williams and curated by Linda Bellon Fisher and designed by Cloyce Wall from Carmel, the opening reception was attended by over 500 people. A show case of images was presented in ZOOM Magazine. In 1989 Jean Ferro's self-portrait work “Eye To Eye” was presented at Paris Photo Lab with additional support from A&I Color Lab and Fuji Photo Film, Inc.

1990 Joyce Tenneson accepted our Distinguished Photographer Award and the year that Women Celebrate Freedom Curated by Nancy Clendaniel, traveled to three major photographic centers: The Photographic Center Northwest, Seattle, WA, (1-3/90); The Portland School of Art, Portland ME 7-8/90); and The National Centre for Photography, The Royal Photographic Society, Bath, England (11/90-1/91). It was also the year that the symposium “The Women Behind the Images” became a coinciding event with WIP International, allowing photographers to come together to share their work with artists from around the world.

And so to 1991, Women Celebrate Freedom opened in Stockholm, and then moved on to the Academy of Fine Arts in Catania, Sicily. WIPI stepped into it's second decade, and a New Year in which people around the world worked together more than ever to maintain peace health and prosperity...Director Nancy Clendaniel (Director from 1987 - Spring 2000)
