See Jane Run

Support this innovative and important project:

See Jane Run is a new photographic project exploring gender roles, beauty ideals and body image. Established by four female photographers – Emma Phillips, Julie Sundberg, Anna Warr and Fiona Wolf – our aim for this project is to evoke dialogue about how we see and perceive ourselves, and how society and the media influences that perception, especially towards women.


Our first group show, See Jane Run, is a featured exhibition in the 2012 Head On Photo Festival, opening at Depot ll, Danks St, Sydney on May 15th. We have each sought to examine issues of gender roles and body image, through our own unique approach and photographic style. We hope the shake up the traditional roles and media portrayals of both men and women. Our vision for this project is long-term. Aligning with other organisations that support and empower women, we plan to run multimedia workshops and courses, as well as ongoing exhibitions, so stay tuned.

If you would like to join the dialogue and keep updated with interesting facts on gender stereotyping have a look on our Facebook page and hit the LIKE button.

Our blog gives you a little more to read, with guest authors talking about gender roles and the influence media has had on female body image.

We have set ourselves a goal of 60 days to cover the costs for our exhibition through crowdfunding. You can donate to the project here.
