Women in the Arts

We are grateful to Tema Stauffer for posting about her history with Nymphoto today and to provide for newcomers to the collective some insight as to the history of the collective.
It is really exciting to see such an emergence in women artists, entrepreneurs, gallerists & curators.
20 years ago there were pioneers like Julie Saul, Mary Ellen Mark & Nan Goldin. But it seems often they had to operate in a vacuum. Times have changed and the Internet had no small part in it. Whether it is talented women photographers like Tema , the innovative 20x200 or sites like Women in Photography, blogs such as I heart photograph, the Ask Me I've Got Answers campaign or the outstanding Sasha Wolf Gallery (all run by women!) --the Internet has allowed for quicker and stronger community building worldwide (The Nymphoto blog has readers in about 50 countries!).
And thank you also to all of you readers & supporters.
