To wrap-up a year of workshops, femLENS opens a street exhibition in Berlin’s Alt-Treptow neighbourhood from October 25-29, 2019. The exhibition “From a Wom*n’s Point of View” brings together photographs taken by women from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. Between March and July 2019, femLENS held a series of documentary photography workshops with women from Mexico, Colombia, Syria, Austria, Brazil, Kenya, Ukraine, Korea, U.S. and Germany. They learned the history of documentary photography, photographic techniques, photo editing techniques using mobile applications, and writing an accompanying text to the photo story.

Each of the six women whose work is featured in the street photo exhibition produced a photo story based on their lives in Berlin. The subjects of these photo stories are as individual as the women themselves, who offer the viewer access to their deeply personal and unique perspective as they move through their environment. The unique perspectives remind us that there is no one point of view on life.
