PWP Featured Speakers - October & November #MonthlyMeeting
Professional Women Photographers
We hope this message finds you well.
We're looking forward to "seeing" you all at the coming member meetings and wanted to let you know about our guest speakers for October and November.
October 7th - Gina Vasquez
Gina Vasquez is a conceptual self-portrait photographer based in New York City. She originally found photography as a means of self-expression, and that continues to find its way into her work, becoming the basis for many concepts. Her style is dreamlike and surreal, often portraying imaginative narratives and bold uses of color and shadow. Through her work, she aims to create introspective images that resonate with the viewer. Vasquez has collaborated with organizations such as 500px and UN Women, and her photographs have received awards from PDN and Microsoft. She graduated with an AAS in Photography and a BS in Art History and Museum Professions from the Fashion Institute of Technology, and is currently completing an MA in Art History at Hunter College.

November 4th - Sarah Bones
Sarah S. Bones saved for her first 35mm camera at age 13, in 1969. She was soon hitchhiking into Philadelphia so she could photograph the lives and circumstances of people living on the street. As a professional photographer and director, her passion in documenting people in need continued and has carried her across the world and locally, into prisons and homeless shelters.
She joined the collective group Photographers For Hope in 2011 and is a longtime member of both ASMP and the NPPA.
