Sistren in Photograhy

Sistren in Photography brings us five photographers from Birmingham—Claudette Holmes, Balbir Kaur, Vicky Okoosi, Dawn Selman, and Maxine Walker—who talk about their practice, experience, and inspiration. Discussions on gender and race intertwine with examples from each artist’s portfolio. A look into each photographers’ process culminates in a historic analogue video art demonstration and a lesson in wet darkroom picture manipulation. (Aphra Video collective, 1991, UK, 26 minutes)

This archival documentary video, from the vaults of the London-based Cinenova, is presented in conjunction with the exhibition The New Woman Behind the Camera.
