Panizza work has had a significant impact on feminist photography and art practice. For over twenty years Panizza has worked as a documentary photographer and has spent time across Asia, Europe, North and South America. Her PhD was the first in Australia to engage with feminist photographic practices, as a street photographer/photojournalist, and draws subversive critical attention to the body and female representations in the urban landscape. Écriture féminine, which traces a feminin writing of the body, which she has refocused as photographie féminine engages in a self-reflexive ethical photographic practice that subverts dominant representations and seeks to empower through its representation of lived experiences. Twenty years ago, Panizza curated the first feminist photographic exhibition in Western Australia at the Perth Centre of Photography. Since then her visual methodology has influenced a range of national and international artists. Panizza has had fifteen solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions.
