September 23rd: Registration Opens for the Photolucida Portfolio Reviews

Photolucida Portfolio Reviews

“Registration will open Tuesday, September 23, 2014 (noon PST) and remain open for 48 hours.

The in-person Portfolio Reviews are the heart of the Photolucida 2015 festival, held during Portland Photo Month. Gallery owners, curators, agency art buyers, collectors and publishers representing small, mid-sized, and major venues from all over the US and abroad gather in Portland to review work. Photographers at the mid-career level register for one-on-one meetings with the reviewers of their choice. Each review session lasts for 20 minutes. The number of participants is limited to assure that everyone receives four or five reviews per day for four days. It’s a great way to network, both with reviewers and peers. Numerous photographers have walked away with opportunities to exhibit, publish, and sell their work after attending the Portfolio Reviews.

In addition to the primary Reviews appointments, Photolucida provides an informal meeting room with “roving” reviewers who look at work and give feedback and potential opportunities. Additional programming also includes “lunchtime chats” (daily talks from luminaries in the photography world) as well as a keynote lecture. Abelardo Morell, Todd Hido and Alec Soth have been keynote speakers in past years. A Portfolio Walk at the Portland Art Museum is organized for participants and is always embraced enthusiastically by the Portland public.

The next Portfolio Reviews event will take place April 23 – 26 2015.”
