"An uncommon angle" Newbury Weekly News

On 14th December 1918, one hundred years ago today, women voted for
the first time, and in that same year the first female MP was elected.
To mark this significant moment in history the 209women artist-led
initiative has taken over parliament. 209 new photographic portraits
of all the female MPs, shot exclusively by female photographers, are
now hanging in the once male-dominated gallery at Portcullis House.

Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP

My portrait of Dr.Rosena Allin-khan MP, the Shadow Minister for Sport.
Dr.Rosena was buzzing with energy and ideas at our makeshift studio on
the Commons Terrace. We ended the photoshoot with her performing a series
of spontaneous star jumps before dashing across London to continue her
work as a medical doctor at St.George's A&E.

My thanks to Frances Prescott for Dr.Rosena's makeup & hair, Julie Stewart
for photography assistance, and Leah Band for her work in post production.
Also massive thanks to the photographer Hilary Wood who conceived the
idea for, and created 209women.
The exhibition previewed last night at Portcullis House, Houses of
Parliament, and opens to the public from today until 8th February 2019.
Entrance is free - click here to book tickets.

I am pleased to announce that my COMMON PEOPLE photography exhibition
will be opening at the Greenham Common Control Tower on Sunday
9th December 2018 and will run for three months until 9th March 2019.
All the photography on show was taken at Greenham Common Peace Camp
during the mid-1980s whilst I was a photography student at Salisbury
College of Art.
Many thanks to Meg Thomas and the trustees of The Tower for inviting
me to exhibit my work in their new gallery space.  All photography is
for sale, together with an exhibition poster and postcards.
If you  would like to attend the launch event, especially if you were
at the Peace Camp during the 1980s, please DM me via the contact form
on my website.

Best wishes.

Wendy

Really thrilled to discover I have been nominated for the Royal

"2018 is being hailed as the Year of the Woman, it marks the centenary

equality.
Through the Hundred Heroines initiative, The RPS is adding its voice
to the global discussion."

Thank you to whoever nominated me, really very much appreciated.
And congratulations to all the heroines I sit alongside with on the list.
It's a real honour.
