‘Encounter’ by Megan E. Doherty

Women in Focus opened its latest exhibit titled “I Am Woman” in the gallery space at the Chicago Photography Center on Sunday March 8th. The exhibit features two dozen photographs made by women photographers on a theme of the title. The exhibit series was juried by photographer and curator Susan Aurinko, who also chose prize winners at the opening reception. “Best in Show” went to Genevieve Lee for her photograph ‘Delicate.’

Two were selected as Honorable Mention:  Megan Doherty for ‘Encounter'; and Suzette Bross for Walk 3/22/14 Winter Street Studios, Houston.

The exhibit is on display at CPC through April 10th.
