City Hall Photo Exhibition on Women at Work
San Francisco's City Hall isn't just a place to get married or lobby for property tax reductions. It's a place to view important photojournalism. This summer, the gold-domed hall is presenting a free, juried photo exhibition called "Picturing Power and Potential," presented by San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery and the International Museum of Women as part of the museum's "Economica: Women and the Global Economy project."
Twenty photographers from around the world have been selected for their images of women at work: from the United States, Anne Hamersky, Jennifer Samuel, Joanna Lipper, Margaret Silverman, Mark Tuschman, Brenda Paik Sunoo, Dana Whitaker, Elizabeth Colton, Michelle McCarron and Rocio Russo; from India, Pattabi Raman, Samyukta Lakshmi and Selvaprakash Lakshmanan; Ariko Inaoka from Japan; Alex Kamweru from Kenya; Isabela Senatore from Brazil; Mathilde Jansen from The Netherlands; Mehran Afshar Naderi from Iran; Miranda Mimi Kuo-Deemer from China; and Sanaz Mazinani from Canada. The show, which is up through Aug. 27, ranges in subject matter from teen community leaders in Richmond and entrepreneurs in Ghana to opera singers in Brazil and seaweed farmers in Zanzibar.
