Tribe – women photographers at Lacock

THE spring exhibition at the Fox Talbot Museum, at Lacock Abbey, until Sunday 20th May is Tribe, the first of three exhibitions celebrating the work of women photographers.

This year, the National Trust is celebrating the centenary of women’s suffrage with a series of programmes called Women and Power.

The first exhibition has been curated by Lori Vrba, a North Carolina-based photographer, showcasing a range of styles and techniques that reflect photography as it is being practiced today.

Lori says: “Our work is feminine without apology. We are drawn to that romantic notion of story-telling, memory, nostalgia, the natural world and family. As artists, we come together within our medium for inspiration, collaboration, postulation, and celebration. This connection provides a deep well of power that we as makers are strengthened and sustained by. It is our commitment to Tribe that not only elevates the work itself but keeps us moving to the lunar rhythms of a passionate and sensitive creative life.”

The Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey, the birthplace of photography in Britain, is open to visitors throughout the year. For more information, visit
