Standing in the Light by Karen Yeomans

28 May - 3 June 2020


Standing in the Light is a series of studies, which challenge the presentation, and representation of women. Visibility feeds social conditioning to measure expectations, talent and success.

There is a distinct lack of female voices and points of view, particularly within sports photography. This perspective is overlooked despite its relevance and importance. We could start a new conversation with our audience, fifty percent of which is female.

Visual beauty and aesthetic grabs an audience’s attention, but more interesting is the talent and the journey behind the stories. We all face our own personal battles so this message is relatable.
