Women's photojournalism exhibit

Prior to starting Pixel+Torch, I worked as a photojournalist, first for the Standard-Examiner in Ogden and later for the Deseret News in Salt Lake City. 

Photojournalism is a very male-dominated field and only about 15 percent of photojournalists are women globally. I'm proud to be a small part of an upcoming photography exhibit opening this Friday, May 20th at the Salt Lake Library. The exhibit "Through Her Eyes: Photography by Utah Female Photojournalists", highlights the work of female photojournalists and work they have done for publications while working in Utah. If you enjoy documentary work, please stop by and check out the images.
