In Her Words is a photographic exhibition focusing on women behind and in front of the camera. Recognizing the significance of feminist photography held by the Horsham Regional Art Gallery, guest curator Olivia Poloni was invited to draw works from the collection alongside key figures in contemporary Australian photographic practice. In Her Words presents the work of women who are bold in the telling of their flaws, uncertainties and strengths; aiming to get to the core of the female experience, rights and challenges. Through theseimages the photographers make bold statements about the societies in which
they live and work.
