Emmanuel Macron on Monday promised a major initiative against crime in France, embarking on a debate that could be a defining element of the presidential elections in April, especially in divided urban centers.

Although he has yet to announce his candidacy, the French president is expected to run widely, but his biggest threat will likely come from right-wing opponents who have made security a major part of their campaigns.

Speaking in Nice, stronghold of the great challenger Valérie Pécresse of the conservatives Les Républicains, Mr. Macron gave substance to the promises to strengthen security. He said he would double the number of police officers by 2030 and set up a specialized security force to tackle areas particularly affected by drug gangs or violence.

Mr Macron said many police officers deal with “tasks that don’t make a difference in your daily life” and prevent them from patrolling neighborhoods, giving them examples of guards during court hearings and public buildings.

Instead, he vowed to “free them from these tasks” so they can return to the streets.

For her part, Ms. Pecresse is just as firm on the voters’ priorities around delinquency and the marginalization of gangs. “We need to restore order, both in our streets and in our national accounts,” she said in an interview published on Monday.

Mr Macron’s speech gave shape to the bones of a trip last year to neighboring Marseille where he vowed to turn the tide of crime. There is perhaps nowhere in France where Mr Macron’s message on crime could have resonated more than in Marseille, the Mediterranean city which has been fighting violence for years.

In 2021, violent inter-party conflicts resulted in 30 murders or attempted murders recorded between June 15 and September 15 alone. Murders in the southern port city are often linked to drug trafficking. Charred bodies have been found in car trunks and children as young as 14 have been among the victims.

Powerful automatic weapons are also widespread. In August, the city’s prosecutor said the killings were “extremely cruel and utterly unhuman” and warned that the victims were only getting younger.

In September, Mr Macron traveled to Marseille for three days – his longest domestic trip outside of Paris during his tenure to date – to unveil a multibillion-euro plan to reduce crime, drug trafficking and poverty. The plan would include hundreds of new police officers.

“I have suffered so much, I cannot put it into words. I want to leave, ”a woman told Mr. Macron as he met residents of the Bassens estate.

Some Marseillais maintain that the city has been unfairly treated by the media. They say that although it is accepted that in some areas gang violence is common, the public perception of the city is misleading and people do not understand why some communities, generally neglected, are prone to crime related to gangs. Drugs.

In December 2020, Benoit Payan, member of the Socialist Party, becomes mayor of Marseille. He succeeds Jean-Claude Gaudin, who held this position for 25 years. Mr Payan stressed the need to invest in the city’s schools, saying they are in “an unworthy state”.

In particular, the northern districts were affected. Traditionally, these areas are where many refugees and migrants arrive. These neighborhoods suffer from higher levels of deprivation and unemployment.

“We are a port; we are a port. And of course we are not so far from the crossroads with Spain, Italy, North Africa. We are therefore at the heart of communication and that includes, of course, the circulation of drugs, ”explains Jérémy Bacchi, 35, local senator and member of the French Communist Party.

“You also have to understand… until the mid-1980s, Marseille was really a city where there were a lot of industries. Here we go, and of course a lot of people stayed on the side of the road because of deindustrialization, ”explains Mr. Bacchi, who grew up in the northern suburbs of Marseille.

A woman walks in the Marronniers district in Marseille in front of graffiti that reads:

He believes that major investments are necessary and that the local population needs more support to obtain jobs that do not require a multitude of skills.

Joseph Downing, senior lecturer in international relations and politics in the UK, said poor quality, overcrowded housing in parts of Marseille and unemployment was a toxic mix.

“For each indicator, there are social issues. Even if you fix the education system, children still come home to a barely coping family with no place to study. Deeper societal issues are all there, ”says Mr. Downing, who lives in Marseille about four months a year and has written extensively on the city and French Muslims.

“These people who cannot access jobs – they need to survive, they need to make a living,” Bacchi said. “And that (drug trafficking) is a way for them to survive for a living because they don’t have a sustainable job available to them.”

The La Castellane real estate complex, north of Marseille, is one of the city's most famous housing estates.  Photo: AFP

These long-standing factors have been around for some time, but more immediate issues are also at play.

Mr Downing says the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated some of the issues at stake in Marseille, in part because of the prevalence of cash jobs.

“There are a lot more people surviving on the bread line in the black / gray economy genre. They’ll work in a kitchen or a store for money and stuff if they don’t have the right papers.

“And during the closures, obviously, these people fell completely through the safety net provided by the French state.

“They say in southern Italy, Covid and lockdowns have actually bolstered the Mafia because they have become the only spectacle in town. And they’re making more money because the one thing that never stopped working and the one thing that made more money during the lockdowns was the drug dealers. “

Mr. Bacchi says that recently, “some very, very big gangsters have served their sentences and been released from prison. Big, big criminals. So now they’re back… and of course, they want to reclaim the space they used to occupy. Of course, there is a struggle for territories, for influence.

He says the justice system and the police are rightly trying to tackle the problems. But he maintains that there is no point in sweeping aside small street vendors.

“You have to investigate, find out where the drugs come from, who gives the orders, how are the drugs transported? You need to empower and empower [to] customs and excise.

But there is a larger point about Marseille, something Mr Bacchi is particularly keen to point out – that the city has an undeserved reputation and unfairly attracts negative headlines.

Granted, there are parts of Marseille where violence is rife – Mr Downing says there are a handful of areas that are almost impregnable – but most of France’s major cities are.

“Sure, The French connection was in Marseille, ”Bacchi said, referring to the city’s major role in shipping heroin to the United States in the middle of the last century.

The French connection is famous all over the world including the United States and, you know, we’ve inherited that story. I mean, it’s part of our history too. And it seems pretty hard to get out of it.

The reality is quite different from some of the negative connotations that still exist, says Bacchi, adding that the people of Marseilles are proud of their city and the sense of belonging is strong.

“Yes, the traffickers are certainly still settling their scores among themselves. But, you know, the people of Marseilles, they don’t feel any pressure.

He remembers a time during his studies when he spent a lot of time in a neighborhood synonymous with drug trafficking.

“Yeah, the traffickers came to us and they said, ‘Well, if you want to buy the stuff, you know, make sure you come see me and I’m here.’

“But otherwise, they were actually quite polite. They just wanted us to know that if we wanted to buy the products, they were available and where to find them.

“But if we weren’t interested in them, they weren’t interested in us. They would leave us alone. As long as you’re not part of a gang of traffickers, as long as you have nothing to do with it, they leave you alone. They leave you alone.

New sculpture in Midtown reminiscent of rock, paper and scissors https://w-mappy.com/new-sculpture-in-midtown-reminiscent-of-rock-paper-and-scissors/ Mon, 10 Jan 2022 15:19:24 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/new-sculpture-in-midtown-reminiscent-of-rock-paper-and-scissors/

The game of rock, paper and scissors has been around since 200 BC, settling minor conflicts through the ages. You probably played it as a kid to figure out who would be “that” in a chat game or who would get the last cookie in the jar. Now, a new installation in Midtown plays on the concept with a 12 foot sculpture called “Conversation Peace” by the artist Kevin’s box. An open-air art gallery presented by Downtown Alliance exhibitions adjacent to the sculpture, all located in Peachtree and 10th Street in Midtown. Box joined “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes via Zoom and Ginny Kennedy, director of urban design at Midtown Alliance, to talk about the new facilities and how they are sparking conversation in the neighborhood.

Interview highlights:

On the Box sculpture and its meaning:

“The idea… was something I had worked with for several years, but wanted to evolve the work a little beyond the obvious of a stone, a piece of paper and a pair. of scissors. So ‘Conversation Peace’ arose very naturally, to be honest, from a conflict that I had and a conversation, or lack of conversation that was going on in a resolution between a friendship that I had. Box said.

“I’ve always referred to this piece, for me, as a mature version of rock, paper, scissors because conflicts can be solved with this lightweight children’s game, but for deeper situations we really need to have a dialogue, and conversation becomes the key to resolution and resolution.

“It has three obvious elements that represent a reference to the theme stone, paper, scissors. There is a boulder or a boulder. In this case, he is about four feet tall and weighs 3,000 pounds. There is a large, classic, sort of traditional pair of scissors that your mother or teacher might have had in their office; those big metal blades with bright red handles, ”Box described. “Then above them is an origami paper crane, which obviously represents paper, but also takes on the archetypal meaning and symbol of peace that has existed for thousands of years in the form of a dove or white bird. “

The attraction of sculpture as a medium:

“It’s a very simple process, 35 steps, over 12 weeks, a good day if everything goes well and everyone gets along. You know, sculpture is a team sport, and that’s what initially attracted me, besides the fact that it has such durability, that these things, these objects can last for thousands of years ” , Box said.

Midtown Alliance and its new outdoor gallery:

“The Midtown Alliance has been very committed to making art a part of everyday life in Midtown. So we want people to be able to see art as soon as they walk into our neighborhood. Whether it’s a three-dimensional sculpture like Kevin’s ‘Conversation Peace’ or the bright and daring super graphics we put on store windows, ”Kennedy said.

“We’ve teamed up with Atlanta Celebrates Photography on an interactive mural that features an augmented reality component just around the corner… It features 20 Georgian photographers against the backdrop of the mural, and if you hover your mobile device over the mural, the wings of this phoenix that is depicted comes to life, ”Kennedy said. “We also exchanged all of our street banners…

How to maintain your film camera https://w-mappy.com/how-to-maintain-your-film-camera/ Mon, 10 Jan 2022 08:45:46 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/how-to-maintain-your-film-camera/

Benedict Brain meets John Quantick, the Mr. Fixit of film cameras, to learn about the art and crafts of maintaining your analog gear

Capture Black on white, a camera repair shop in Bristol, is like stepping into a cave of Aladdin’s photographic gadgets. A photographic paradise. The shelves are filled with old film cameras in various states of repair and devices for measuring this and adjusting that. Camera owner and magician John Quantick is in the store, located in one of the city’s hippest areas, where he’s been repairing cameras for over 30 years.

Portrait of John Quantick

John quantick

Its main purpose is to repair and restore movies rather than digital cameras, although it also works on digital cameras. As you might expect, his business has seen some downturns as digital photography took hold, however, in recent years he has become increasingly busy, especially with young people who are crossing their lines. doors, eager to experience the “real” process of imaging.

Old pundits are re-emerging too, hankering to the good old days of cinema. I’m here for advice on how to maintain and look after a film camera, what to look out for when buying a second hand camera, and to learn more about the process from John in establishing the condition of the device and how it goes about the repair process.

When a device is delivered in John must first establish what condition it is and has some basic principles to follow. The first is the shutter. “I especially want to know if the shutter is working,” explains John. “I want to know what the blinds are shooting and establish what the shutter speeds are doing. I have a machine – a shutter speed tester – that tells me exactly what the blinds are doing and if the shutter speeds are correct.

maintain the camera

Daily maintenance of your film camera is crucial, but the big jobs are best handled by a professional like John

The shutter is often pulled out, which is usually due to lubrication or a lack of lubrication. As a camera ages, the lubricant dries up and the blinds drift, affecting the accuracy of speeds. Once I have access to the blind mechanism, I can lubricate properly and then adjust the blinds and speeds to be correct. It’s mostly just age and there’s not much you can do to prevent it other than having it serviced regularly. Fabric blinds are the worst for drift speeds because they stretch.

The whole process of a function test is to eliminate unknowns and the next step for John is to determine if the lens mount is square and aligned with the film plane, which can lead to focus issues. point. “More often than not this is off on old cameras,” reveals John, adding, “This is probably because the camera has been dropped or it is swinging with large lenses attached.

I am using a dial gauge to determine if it’s off and if so I can easily wedge it. We’re only talking about alignment microns, but even these very small amounts can show up with some parts of the image looking oddly smooth. On older cameras, the front alignment is almost always off. ‘ Using a lightbox, John will also establish the accuracy of the camera’s light meter if there is one in the camera.

john hold the camera

John’s Shop is an oasis in the midst of trendy restaurants and artisanal cafes …

Finally, John checks the objective. “I’m using a collimator,” John explains, looking at the gun of the device. “I’m looking to see if the lens is on focus or if it’s the body that’s off, and then I work on the net in between. I’m just trying to establish if a sharp image forms in the shot of the film and wonder if things are sharp or not.

If there is still a problem and I know the image on the film plane is good, I can assume that the fault could be with the range finder. I’ll check the rangefinder; it’s a separate reflex system with the mirror and the screen and over time things drift here as well. It’s about eliminating and isolating the problems.

Second-hand traps to avoid

John is very hesitant to buy used equipment online without having the opportunity to see it first. “It’s 50-50… it’s a danger zone, you just don’t know the state of what you’re looking at; a lot of the issues are hidden, so it’s really hit and miss. ‘ Searching secondhand and charity stores as well as flea markets and yard sales is a much better idea.

John tells me the first thing to look at is the shutter. “A simple audio test at a shutter speed of about a second should tell you if the shutter feels good, and so does the ‘feel’ of the winding mechanism,” says John. Of course, visual inspection is also vital. “Look through the viewfinder and see what it looks like at infinity, because everything is set back from infinity,” says John.

A few simple tests and you can pocket a real beauty at a garage sale

“Also, look for mold and corrosion, especially in the battery case. Batteries left in the cameras for a long period of time will leak and the acid that seeps in can drastically degrade the wiring, deep in the camera, causing all kinds of problems. Fortunately, most older film cameras are primarily mechanical, so complex electrical systems and the like are less of a problem. Finally, a full function test, to establish the parameters mentioned in this feature, will give you peace of mind that the lens alignment, shutter speeds and light meters are all working and will set you back £ 30.

John’s top tips for maintaining your film camera

Keep dry

keep the camera dry

Dry your camera properly in an open dry area. Do not leave the camera in your bag especially if it has been wet and cold. Fungus really starts off in dark, airless conditions like a bag, and the moisture from the condensation feeds on the spores. By leaving your camera in the bag you are essentially creating the perfect mushroom growing conditions.

To sweep up


Use a makeup brush such as a soft blush brush to gently remove thick dust and sand so that it does not scratch the lens. A blower brush can also be useful for this. Do not be tempted to blow with your mouth, as sputum can easily get on the camera or lens causing damage. Makeup brushes are widely available and inexpensive.

Immobilize him

use a camera strap

It sounds obvious, but one of the best ways to maintain and maintain your film camera is to use a wrist strap to prevent yourself from accidentally dropping it. If you’re going for the “hipster movie shooter vibe,” there are plenty of cool strings to choose from, and again, many are reasonably priced. A decent padded bag is also essential.

Filter tips

John suggests that the best way to protect the front of the lens is to use a simple UV filter. Keep the lens back cap on (well, both really) so that dust doesn’t build up and fall into the camera (especially true for digital cameras with sensors). Try to change as few objectives as possible in the field; and if you must, find a sheltered place away from the wind.

Storage capacity

If you will not be using your film camera for a long time, remove the batteries to avoid corrosion problems should the acid start to seep in. Leave the shutter in the firing position to relieve the shutter. Finally, disconnect the lens and use the body and lens caps to store it; it is also a good practice on long journeys to take the strain off the lens mount.

John quantick

John Quantick started repairing cameras when he was 18. He spent a few years in London learning medium format before returning to Bristol in the 1980s where he worked at Pelling and Cross for around 4 years working on professional material. In 1987 John started his Black on White camera repair shop and it still works well today. See www.bonwcameras.co.uk.

On Sunday, Bihar MP BJP Rashmi Varma announced her resignation from the State Assembly for “personal reasons”. She shared on social media a photo of herself bearing a handwritten note to the President.

“I am voluntarily resigning from my post in the Legislative Assembly of Bihar for personal reasons. Will be happy if you accept my resignation letter, ”his note said.

Reacting to the same, Bihar BJP chief Sanjay Jaiswal said the MP made the decision “on impulse” and was arrested before she could deliver the letter to President Vijay Kumar Sinha. She was persuaded to retract in the same way, he said.

“It should be made clear that she made the decision on a whim, reacting to a family feud with no political angle to the episode,” Jaiswal said in a PTI report.


Last month, the brother of Narkatiaganj MP Rashmi Varma, Anoop Prasad, was arrested in connection with the Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test Paper Leak Case. Anoop Prasad has a printing house in Delhi.

At the time, she distanced herself from the affair by claiming to belong to her husband’s family after the wedding. After Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra pointed out the connection between Anoop Prasad and Rashmi Varma, the Bihar MP urged her not to target “little political workers like me”.


According to Bihar BJP chief Sanjay Jaiswal, Rashmi Varma is engaged in a real estate dispute with her late husband’s brothers. The family owns the Shikarpur estate in the West Champaran district.

“She took the plunge in a fit of rage after someone on the other side made a sarcastic remark about her political stance,” Jaiswal said.

“The chapter is closed. She has agreed to settle the case with her relatives while serving as a member of Parliament,” he added.

Henrieta Leavitt gave us the ability to judge distances in galaxies far, far away.

“Henrietta Swan Leavitt (July 4, 1868 – December 12, 1921) was an American astronomer. A graduate of Radcliffe College, she worked at the Harvard College Observatory as a ‘computer’, in charge of examining photographic plates in order to measuring and cataloging the luminosity of stars. This work led her to discover the relationship between luminosity and period of Cepheid variables. * Leavitt’s discovery provided astronomers with the first “standard candle” with which to measure distance to stars. distant galaxies. ”- Wikipedia * Cepheid Definition: any element of a class of variable stars whose very regular variations in light are directly linked to their intrinsic luminosities and whose apparent luminosities are used to estimate distances in astronomy.

Henrietta Swan Leavitt’s book allows us to review where we were when she was born in 1868 and when she died a little over a hundred years ago. . . “Long ago in a galaxy far, far away. Henrieta Leavitt gave us the ability to judge distances across the universe.

Edward Jones - Bart Dalton

This true story from 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society at a time of immense scientific discovery, when women’s ideas were rejected until men claimed credit. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be difficult to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication has changed the way we understand both the heavens and the earth.

]]> Carrying paper bags and clown noses, Giants fans deliver their final message to John Mara: “Clean house! “ https://w-mappy.com/carrying-paper-bags-and-clown-noses-giants-fans-deliver-their-final-message-to-john-mara-clean-house/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 18:25:00 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/carrying-paper-bags-and-clown-noses-giants-fans-deliver-their-final-message-to-john-mara-clean-house/

They had bags on their heads that said “Fire Joe Judge” and “Fire Everyone”. They shouted at co-owner John Mara that his nepotism-littered franchise needs “footballers, not family!” At least one fan donned a clown costume. Those who wanted to watch the Giants’ season finale in person at MetLife Stadium on Sunday – and believe it or not, there were several thousand – could have bought a ticket for around six dollars near kick-off.

Traffic, generally turned back to the Turnpike exit, was light. The parking lots, normally filled with hours until kick-off, were sterile. With plenty of close parking for the 22-7 loss to Washington, the walk from the field was shorter than GM Dave Gettleman’s.



After a year of horrific football, embarrassing post-game rants and an embarrassing fan promotion that made the once-proud franchise a league-wide laughing stock, a few thousand fans who braved the elements were ready. to put up with a terrible football Sunday in person. – one more pitiful loss in a 4-13 season.

Looks like there are some fans out there who just can’t leave the Giants.

“They are a [bleeping] disorder. They are hopeless, ”said Pat Daddino, a 75-year-old Westchester County native. “But coming to the Giants isn’t just the game, it comes with everyone. Misery loves company. It’s like you have a family and you have a child who is (angry) but you still love him and take care of him.

With Judge rambling over the past few weeks on the culture and effort of his players, the Giants amassed a TD and 177 yards of offense on Sunday, 83 passing yards – against another team with nothing to play. The Giants ran a quarterback on a third and nine from their 4-yard line.

Meanwhile, some fans refused to boycott. They wanted to deliver the message in person.

Gettleman, who spent the pre-game hugging and saying goodbye on the pitch, “has to go! Said Vinnie D’Antonio, 59. Her 65-year-old boyfriend Antonio Esposito replied: “His choices over the past few years have killed us.”

Longtime North Jersey pals – D’Antonio is from Totowa, Esposito from West Orange – don’t agree on everything. They’re split on Judge, following the trend of those interviewed for this story.

D’Antonio thinks the judge should get another year; Gettleman’s injuries and poor team spirit tied the judge’s hands, he said. He’s not a fan of his recent post-game speeches (“Looks like he’s a little worried about his job”), but he’s ready to look beyond.

Esposito thinks Judge should pack his bags and join the group of coaches who get fired on Black Monday: “He’s a lame coach,” he said. “They have to clean the house from top to bottom.”

In a dream scenario for many Giants, that would include Mara, who is taking more and more heat for the disastrous decade his team have seen since winning the last Super Bowl in 2011. Fans are resigned to the fact that he isn’t going anywhere, but some would like him to hand over the football decision-making to someone else.

“It’s the owner. What are you going to do? You can’t ask the guy to sell the team. It’s his team! said d’Antonio. “He just has to clean it. It’s in bad shape right now, as bad as I’ve seen it.

Before the game, the Giants were fourth in the NFL on average with 74,448 spectators per game, behind Dallas, Green Bay and Denver. But that number represents tickets sold, not fannies in the seats – and, as this last lost season wore on, fewer fans bothered to show up.

Antonio Esposito of West Orange and Vinnie D’Antonio of Totowa pose for a photo in front of their Giants-themed hatchback outside MetLife Stadium ahead of Sunday’s season finale against the Washington football team. These are two of the few thousand fans who just can’t leave the Giants.

For the record, veteran Giants reporters couldn’t recall such an uncrowded game since MetLife Stadium opened in 2010. It may even have rivaled what are believed to be the smallest crowd. for an unplayed Giants game with replacement players at the old Giants Stadium – a December 4, 1983 game against the St. Louis Cardinals that attracted only 25,156 fans.

The Giants are strangely on the same track as their opponent on Sunday. The Washington football team, once an NFL powerhouse that would fill each of FedExField’s 90,000 seats, is a league-wide laughing stock with a stadium half-empty every two weeks. In 2021, the WFT occupied the penultimate place in average household attendance.

There will always be lots of people in the stands as long as diehard fans like Esposito, Daddino and D’Antonio continue to show up. They were among the few thousand in the stands on Sunday and they’ll probably be back next year too. But they hope the empty grandstands and sterile parking lots will serve as a wake-up call.

“I just hope when he sits in his box and sees how empty his stadium is, he wakes up,” Esposito said.

Lenovo lights up the smart home with a clock, a frame – Pickr https://w-mappy.com/lenovo-lights-up-the-smart-home-with-a-clock-a-frame-pickr/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 09:25:34 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/lenovo-lights-up-the-smart-home-with-a-clock-a-frame-pickr/

Decorating the smart home may mean the return of bedside clocks and wall photo frames.

Usually when we talk about smart home the first thing that comes to mind is a smart speaker – Hey Google, or Hey Alexa! – and then maybe a smart light, because these are the easiest entry points into the world of the smart home.

But these aren’t the only ways to spruce up your home, although they’re obvious.

Lenovo has dabbled with the bedside clock for a number of years, trying out a Google-equipped pint-sized smart display, but that’s not the only attempt, and this year is launching something. a little more family-friendly with a childish look at the bottom.

The latest attempt is the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential, a bedside clock with an LED display that is not in color, but supports built-in Amazon Alexa, with support for a custom illuminated docking station in low to deliver colors, plus the ability to turn the predominantly black LED screen into a pair of eyes for something cute.

Lenovo’s other attempt to make the home smarter can go on the walls, with a smart framework. Not quite the Google Nest Hub that can function as a smart photo frame, it’s a 21.5-inch Full HD digital canvas measuring the equivalent of 15 × 24 inches, and featuring Android 10 and a Mediatek chip below, with 16 GB of storage.

It can be horizontal or portrait and support Google Photo, but it can also bypass Google login altogether and upload images and photos directly to the Lenovo Photo Frame, with virtual sticky notes that can be added to make it a sort. of home digital hub. all sorts. It will even soon support Instagram directly on the frame, we are told.

Interestingly, the Lenovo Smart Frame is slated for release this month, available from $ 599 in Australia, while the Smart Clock Essential and its Ambient Light Dock don’t yet have a price or release date, but we hope. learn more soon.

Twenty women photographers to know in 2022! – Analog magazine forever https://w-mappy.com/twenty-women-photographers-to-know-in-2022-analog-magazine-forever/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 02:12:10 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/twenty-women-photographers-to-know-in-2022-analog-magazine-forever/

Almost a hundred years ago, in April 1906, Hartford’s all-male Camera Club hosted an exhibition titled Photographs made entirely by women. According to a Press release in the Hartford Daily Courant, “This was the first time in the history of ‘new photography’ that women photographers were asked to organize an exhibition exclusively of their own work.” This event took place several decades after ‘Anna Atkins made him first cyanotype, but again, it was considered a revolutionary event.

Equity has improved over the past century, but women continue to be underestimated. Since its inception, photography has been a boys’ club, and women have established themselves as rebels and heroines for infiltrating the clubhouse when neither should exist (nor the clubhouse or the need for rebellion). We shouldn’t be considered heroic to be women photographers, but rather for the way we insist on using the medium to tell our stories through our unique feminine gaze and a nuanced perspective. We are also heroic, because we refuse to underestimate ourselves even when we have been told otherwise, which is the best form of rebellion of all.

In every woman I have deeply respected throughout my life, I have witnessed equal amounts of courage and vulnerability. Photography requires both a dime a dozen, especially when using film. Like life, cinema is inherently unpredictable and requires us to be patient and present; it challenges us to reflect on our past choices as we learn through our mistakes. When using film we have to be open to various outcomes to see the beauty out of order when things fail miserably. When selecting women for this article, I chose works that spoke about this resilience – this fierce vulnerability.

I am drawn to a work that invites me to participate beyond a simple spectator and allows me to learn more about the world through the eyes of the artist. Whether an image expresses a personal narrative, takes a stand, celebrates the beauty of other women, or finds happiness in the mundane and the absurd, I seek the connection. These twenty women do it with breathtaking bravery and intelligence. Some fit into the image and take back control of the male gaze. Others bend the limits of the medium to their will through innovative techniques of multiple exposures, film soup and experimental darkroom practices. Some of these women have graduate degrees and exhibit around the world, while others just found a camera at a garage sale, and with the first click of the shutter, they found their true voice. .

We elevate each other by sharing ourselves and leaving space for others to do the same. It was with this in mind that I started Vigilante Darkroom Zine. I strive to be a woman who uses her voice to empower and inspire other women. I believe that we can be this soft landing space for each other through collaboration and cooperation instead of comparison and competition. With our cameras to protect us, we can find ourselves exactly where we are taking even the spookiest parts of the world into smaller, less terrifying pieces, one frame at a time, together.
