Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2014

WIPI President, Jean Ferro has announced that selected photographs created by members of Women in Photography International will be included in the final print edition of Silvershotz, a fine art collectible photography journal from Australia, edited and published by Clive Waring-Flood.

By tapping the rich and diverse pool of photography culled from the WIPI membership, Silvershotz is devoting 45 pages to the work of eleven WIPI photographers, creating a stunning showcase of women's work. Included are Reflective Cityscapes by Lilyan Aloma, Fine Art Equine Photography by Merrie Asimow, Conceptual Still Life Creations by Jean Ferro, Cirque du Soleil Portraits by Ivy Bigbee, and Documentary work by Cathy Greenblat, Amie Vanderford, and Betty Press. Also presented are unique collections that include Metaphoric Visuals by Kathryn Jacobi, Gilded Nature Photographs by Wendi Schneider, Planet Earth Composites by Joyce Lopez, and Digitally-derived contemplative images by Joanne Scherf. Currently available via online subscription only, this final analog issue of Silvershotz is slated for publication in May 2014. Be sure to take the opportunity to order this highly collectible publication with its lavish color imagery, pristine B&W reproductions, and signature layouts that allow the work to maintain visual hierarchy thanks to advertising-free content.

Founded in 1981 by a group of pioneering, energetic women photographers based in Southern California, WIPI (http://www.womeninphotography.org) is a nonprofit organization with the goal of promoting the visibility of women photographers and their work.

In 2000, with the support of historian Peter Palmquest and WIPI's past director Nancy Clendaniel (1987-2000), photo artist Jean Ferro at the helm as president, expanded its primary source of outreach by switching from the bimonthly printed member publication F2 - thereby establishing the nonprofit as a comprehensive online presence. Since this decisive transition nearly 15 years ago, WIPI has become a premier, online professional creative resource through competitions, exhibitions and feature stories about women’s photographic work.

Women In Photography International continues to present its Distinguished Photographer Award, honoring woman photographers who have worked professionally in the field for over 25 years. WIPI’s 2013 recipient was Editta Sherman, the celebrated 103-year-old photographer who became known as "The Duchess of Carnegie Hall." Past recipients include: Annie Leibovitz, Linda McCartney, Mary Ellen Mark, Sylvia Plachy, Joyce Tenneson, and Grace Robertson. Carrie Mae Weems, a WIPI Founding member, recently received the 2013 MacArthur Genius Fellowship Award.

After 33 years in operation, WomenInPhotography.org now boasts a unique, worldwide network of members, comprised of professional photographers, gallery owners, photo educators, curators, artisans, photography students and supporters.
