About

Opening doors for African and Asian female photographers to make their mark.

 / Another Perspective aims to provide young and talented female photographers from Africa and Asia who are still unknown in Switzerland with a platform to display their photos and tell their stories.

The focus is on female artists because women face a unique set of challenges that inhibit them from independently pursuing their vocations and passions. In addition, in many countries and cultures, female photographers have closer, more personal connections to members of their communities than their male colleagues. In particular, they are able to gain the trust of women and children and therefore create intimate and touching photographic narratives.

The first exhibition, featuring photographs by Fati Abubakar from Nigeria, took place in March 2018 at the Photobastei in Zurich and was a great success.

The new exhibition "Women of India" with photos of Deepti Asthana will be shown again in the Photobastei from May 16 until June 2, 2019. Please check "Ausstellungen 2019" for further information.
