Don't Smile's purpose is simple - to carve out a space of the internet exclusively dedicated for showcasing exceptional straight photography by women, both established and emerging. The world still seems to be struggling to make space for women in museums, galleries, and basically everywhere else. Don't Smile aims to aid in the shift to a more inclusive industry that celebrates extraordinary photographic work by women from all walks of life and backgrounds. Don't Smile features one photographer bi-weekly as well as an online group exhibition each quarter. Don't Smile has future plans to manifest in physical spaces both in galleries and in print. Visit the site at and follow along on Instagram at @dontsmilephoto!
