This exhibit is hosted by Vogue Italia as part of the magazine’s first-ever Vogue Photo Festival. The Female Gaze will explore the female photographer view and re-appropriation of female identity in fashion photography. "[The exhibit] features the works of female photographers who are revolutionising the way the female body is represented in fashion and an exhibition about the photographers selected through the scouting initiative launched as of today by PhotoVogue," Vogue Italia said in a statement.
