The intersections of photography, representation and identity are central to a new exhibition at the High Museum of Art. “Underexposed: Women Photographers from the Collection” was curated by the High Museum’s Sarah Kennel with Maria L. Kelly, curatorial assistant for photography. Kennel is also The High’s Donald and Marilyn Keough Family Curator of Photography.

Over 100 photographs in the exhibit were taken from the High’s collection, and they demonstrate unique and notable contributions by women. The works date from the early 20th century through today’s era.

“This seemed like a perfect opportunity to really delve into our photography collection and tell some of the fascinating stories about how women have really transformed the medium of photography in the last 100 years,” said Kennel. She continued, “This is not a history of photography through the eyes of women photographers so much as a focus and exploration of our collection through the work of women.”

The exhibition will be on view April 17 through August 1.
