Beyond the Frame

Beyond the Frame is a year-long program organized by The Light Factory—and graciously funded by Wells Fargo—to foster a creative community of women photographers. In 2017 we held a call for entry and received over 40 applications. Based on submitted essays and photographic work, 10 women were selected by outside jurors to form the group, which meets approximately once a month and has access to The Light Factory’s darkroom, digital printing lab, and lighting studio. The Beyond the Frame artists have opportunities to attend TLF workshops and demos that occur throughout the year. Participants will also be working to develop new creative work and explore a variety of photographic processes. Ultimately, the aim of Beyond the Frame is to assist the participants in achieving their goals of artistic growth and help them expand their technical breadth, all while creating a tight-knit community of female photographers in the process. The program will culminate with an exhibition of the participants’ new work in the fall of 2018.
