Women Photographers' Exhibition CONCEPTA

I am delighted to again take part in the annual women photographers' exhibition in Melbourne to celebrate International Women's Day and raise funds for UN Women.

Now, in its 8th year, this year's exhibition is titled CONCEPTA.

"Abstract photography focuses on the simplest elements of artistic expression: form, light, colour. The viewer may not see the whole subject within the photograph. In an abstract, the subject is often only a small part of the idea of the image."

CONCEPTA was formally opened by Laura Napolitano, Director of the Italian Institute of Culture, Melbourne on 4 March 2018.
