Mission Statement

Femme Fotale is a photographic project by women for everyone. We provide artistic platforms for women, femme identifying and GNC individuals to show their art regardless of class or education. We saw a lack of representation for non-dominant narratives in our own community and responded by creating spaces including photo books and photography shows. By fostering a community, we uplift artists and push their work to the forefront of the arts. We are flipping traditional roles from subject to artist and encouraging individuals to show their work publicly to receive recognition in the professional world.
