From print to screen, still to moving images, the methods and materiality of photojournalistic production and dissemination have changed greatly. Despite the rapidly changing media landscape, the unbalanced gender politics of contemporary photographic reportage remains the same—females are disproportionately underrepresented.

Muse investigates the role of women in visual journalism by subverting themes of voyeurism, female subjectivity, and the often-unbalanced relationship between artist and subject. Featuring a group of emerging storytellers with roots in photojournalism, Muse explores the construction of these women’s visual narratives from inspiration to dissemination. The placement of their work in a gallery setting and the multiple mediums reflected in their work, highlight the contribution of female photographic reportage to producing expanded, creative forms of documentary.
