Women Behind the Camera: Three female looks on our paradoxical world

I have wanted to talk about the feminine in the world of photography. But there are so many interesting photographers did not know who to choose, or how to approach the subject. At first I wanted to talk about the first photographers in history as Constance Mundy, Talbot woman, but then I chose to write about contemporary photography by women.
In this article I will tell you three very different photographers including, but moves them one last, his passion for photography. We will see three women using the camera as a tool to show their unique vision of the world around them, whether as fashion photographers, portrait or fotoreporteras.
The Milanese photographer Paola de Grenet, based in Barcelona after a long stay in London, reflected in his photographs the reality that surrounds it. His works, often presented as stories or pictures, have a large social base, hence the importance of describing what he sees reliably, using the camera as a tool description, without losing any artistic air to reflected in his early work.
The picture we see of De Grenet, as well as opening the post, is his work Albino Beauty, an interesting project that attempts to eliminate the stigma associated with the different portraits by a group of albino people. Most of the photographs are in Aicuña, a village in the Rioja Argentina where the rate of albinism is one of the highest in the world. According to De Grenet with his work aims to:
We can say that this photographer living in Barcelona since 2003 has received several awards for his photographic career in London and in Italy and Spain. His works have appeared in magazines such as EXIT, Fisheye or 1000 words, among others. And has participated in the festival with their jobs GetxoPhoto2012 Pink Dreams and Growing Up (In the video above is a brief explanation can this work) and exhibited at art fairs like PhotoMiami, Berlineliste or ArtMadrid.
No doubt a great photographer who can give us a lot and be a source of inspiration for many of us when making a photographic project.
Sophia Salome Garcia, known as Vorfas, Argentina is a young photographer. I discovered many years ago and almost nonexistent thanks to Fotolog and then I followed by flickr and facebook. I remember being passionate about his portraits, the use of black and white and extremely easy to enhance the beauty of the models. Vorfas had and has the gift of uniting in the same picture as beautiful with the unusual and peculiar.
His work ranges from fashion to photography images more personal, which are more conceptual and pictorial. We could say that in his personal work uses images are illustrative but not exempt of glamor and eroticism that characterizes his work.
Through his Canon digital SLR, this Mendoza enhances women's figure drawing his mysterious and sensual side. We can say that Vorfas has a sensitivity and creativity to capture the beauty of each person, removing the beautiful from the disturbing and bizarre, as many would like.
Tanit Plana's work leaves me speechless. The concept behind each of your work is really powerful. Watching their projects as we think each of this, attempts that people contemplate their photographs to question their world. Yes, Tanit understand photography from commitment, attempts to capture an idea, wonder about this world and its paradoxes through the delicate and raw images.
Tanit Plana discovered this year thanks to a conference held at the OjodePez Photo Meeting Barcelona 2012. I impact both your project Forever, portraits of women of different ages dressed in their wedding gowns, I decided to talk about it, show you this great work.
The way that the project faced Forever was original and fun, through the questions you marry me? commissioning various media managed to contact a group of women interested in working with her. Women of all ages who did not mind re-wear white and made orders Tanit Plana.
Work Forever is a breath of fresh air, a critique of the status of women: dream about getting married, to live our own happy ending story, be the princesses of our home, but also want to be free and independent, keep our living space. So when we wake up from our dream we realize that it was exactly as we had.
A part of this exciting project of women wrapped in their old wedding dresses include the raw photographs that he took his grandparents in a residence, work which won the 2001 scholarship contest Fotopres La Caixa, giving you the opportunity to focus their life was photography.
As I have indicated these photographers are very different from each other, but all are united by a common denominator: the need to express the world through their cameras. A world depending on our experiences will in one way or another. With this article I have tried to show you different ways of working, to express such personal experiences. The three photographers, regardless of their style, they have a funny way of showing their views to the reality around us.
