The exhibition includes ten women artists from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and the United States. The photography media include gelatin silver print and digital print on fine art paper. The categories of photographic form include experimental photography, straight photography, and manipulated photography. The content is combined of portraiture, human figure, landscape, documentary, and fine art photography. With framing, handmade book, interactive installation; the women artists express their issues of concern: gender and cultural differences, imagination and practice of happiness, role-playing and temporal displacement, myth encounters with environmental issues, as well as the growth of women's stories. The exhibition presents a diverse style and rich originality.
Alyson BELCHER made use of her inventory of Polaroid negatives with pinhole camera to create the last series of self-portraits. The series of work is characterized by continued shadowy figure and movement. Meanwhile, it also implies the elegance of queer culture. Mary GOODRICH presents a series of physical senses as a strategy of liberation for erotic joy. With hanging navel and footprints on the ground, Trudee SIEMANN attracts viewers to embark and compare, which fully demonstrates the interaction between identity and gender differences.
Wo Bik WONG’s photos of the Yu family presents a scene beyond time and space with 1930’s costume rented from the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre, creating the coexistence of old soul and new set of thinking. YANG Chih-Miao invited women who attended the first women’s school in Taiwan from Tamsui to gather and take pictures at Taiwan's first female cultural landmark. After the group photo, she did individual interviews to record the brilliant lives of the local women who are over 90 years old.

CHIU Ching Ying "Good Pregnancy. Good Luck "series presents the interaction between the photographer and the prospective parents full understanding, she is a more gentle tone, writing a happy chapter in life.
Minstrel Ching Chieh KUIK's "SONG TO DURGA" originated from her experience of abortion and divorce. She returned to her family in Malaysia from France after the abortion and divorce. Inspiration by Indian director Satyajit Ray’s " Song Of The Little Road", the role DURGA is always hopeful even in adversity. From sentimentality to purification, the woman artist witnessed the way to create in her own point of view.
WAN YIYI seeks the trace of Madame Pele in nature. Besides being attracted by the magical outlook and variegation of lava, YIYI also confirmed that woman was “insurmountably drawing on historical and political origins of mythopoetic." The legendary curse of Madame Pele, that tourists will have bad luck if they take away any stone, is in fact an environment protector’s strategy to rescue nature. The angry volcano Goddess triggered tourism and the Big Island has since then continued to expand. What a positive energy!
Women's Voices-International Photography Exhibition not only spreads a preliminary emancipation, but also implies the cohesion of the sense. The guerrilla girls in HSU Wei-Hui’s work are courageously stepping towards their future freedom. Through exploration, they continue to live in a creative attitude, actively participating and opening a cross-border dialogue.
