Lecture by Suzanne Pastor – Women and the Body – Identity and Sexuality in Photography by Women
The emergence of women photographers in the medium of photography is still a relatively recent phenomena, and parallels a number of socio- cultural developments in Western society, such as the feminist movement. This lecture deals with how women have used photography to express their evolving artistic as well as sexual identities, especially from the 70s and 80s to the present.

The project describes the specific role of women in the context of modern history and aims to offer a view on an interesting sociological phenomenon that becomes more or less important indicator of the value of human life due to social, political, economic, religious, social and other variables during the last 80 years.
