Port Stephens photographer Kylie Foley will have one of her images showcased in the 2019 Loud and Luminous national photography exhibition, which will be launched in Canberra on International Women’s Day.
Called Power, Ms Foley's image was taken using the wet plate collodion technique, which dates back to the early 1800's where portraits were handcrafted onto plates of tin and glass using silver and light.
"I’m an advocate for empowering young women," Ms Foley said. "My artwork focuses on empowering young women to be brave giving them respect, a voice, value and equal education."
Ms Foley added that the project is unique and important in "recognising the extensive cultural contribution women photographic artists and photographers have made in this country".
Loud and Luminous highlights the works of 100 Australian female photographers.
