Explore the role of women in photography throughout the medium’s history.

Programmed to coincide with the centenary of the Representation of the People’s Act 1918, which enabled some women over the age of 30 the right to vote for the first time, this exhibition celebrates the contribution of women to photography.

Drawn from the permanent photographic collections at Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales, work is presented by women from the first pioneering female photographers in Wales, Mary Dillwyn and Thereza Mary Dillwyn, through to emerging contemporary practitioners, including Chloe Dewe Mathews, Bieke Depoorter and Clementine Schneidermann.

The second part of Women in Focus, Women in Front of the Lens, runs from 1 December and explores the representation of women as subjects in photography.
