WIPNYC launched June 2008 as an outlet for women photographers to exhibit work outside the traditional model of the commercial art world. It's designed to be a resource for photographers, editors, curators, gallery owners, and viewers to discover and enjoy the work of women artists. As an internet-based project, the site reaches a global audience. Exhibitions are co-curated by Amy Elkins & Cara Philips. HAFNY was established in 2005 by amani olu and Jon Feinstein, and is a not-for-profit organization that works to advance the careers of emerging fine-art photographers by way of exhibition and publishing opportunities, limited-edition print sales, twice–annual artists grants, and educational programming.
