Wo.Mansion is an international collective of thirteen female photographers whose work has been curated into a unique interactive tour showcasing their artistic interpretation of their experiences of Covid-19.
The project is the brainchild of Porto based British photographer Anna Gunn, of McGunn Media. Anna invited female photographers from around the world to submit a minimum of three and a maximum of five images plus a short video that depicted their lives under the restrictions of the pandemic. Their brief was to photograph rooms in the house, studio or space of their choice. Anna and Katherine Gooding, a commercial photographer specializing in 360/VR images and virtual tours, then transformed the collection of images into a virtual mansion photographic tour.
Anna Gunn said, "2020 was an historic year, and whilst we all recognize the idea that we have weathered the same storm but are all in different boats, there has not been a universal recognition that women have been the ones steering those boats. Wo.Mansion gives a global audience the opportunity to view, from a very personal perspective, how lockdown life has been different and unique for this group of amazing international women artists. Each photographer interpreted the brief in a different way and the resulting images bring together their skills across fine art, conceptual, interiors, commercial, portraiture and lifestyle photography. During a period that has changed our lives in ways we never expected, this group of female artists have created a unique virtual space that can welcome everyone in without the need for social distancing. This project stands as a collective time capsule of a difficult year as we look forward to a brighter future.”
The photographers taking part in the project have submitted their images from across Europe, South Africa, and the USA.
