Launched in June 2008, Women in Photography is an innovative website founded by artists Amy Elkins and Cara Phillips, which features the work of international female artists. WIP is an internet-based project that exhibits work outside of the traditional model of the commercial art world, allowing it to reach a global audience. Mixing emerging photographers with artists that have achieved high levels of success, the project is a resource for photographers, editors, curators, gallerists, and viewers alike to discover and enjoy the work of female artists. WIP presents a solo exhibition monthly.

WIP just celebrated its fifth anniversary as well as its 62nd exhibition. WIP has been fortunate enough to work with Aperture Foundation, LACMA, MoCP, Lesile Tonkonow, Lightwork, and to participate in Young Curators, New Ideas II at P.P.O.W Gallery, among many other collaborations.
