Photolucida 2013

I’m excited to be heading down to Portland for the 2013 Photolucida Portfolio Reviews. This event, which takes place every other year, brings together 160 photographers and 60 reviewers from around the world. Over the next four days, each photographer will have the opportunity to meet with 18-20 reviewers of their choice for twenty-minute in-depth review sessions. The reviewers, who are gallery owners, curators, publishers, editors, and consultants, provide valuable critiques of the work. In many instances the connections result in exhibitions, publications and sales. In addition to the formal reviews, photographers share their work with one another and with informal roving reviewers. Several events are open to the public. There will be a portfolio walk featuring the work of the 160 participating photographers from 6 - 9 pm on April 18 at Castaway, 1900 NW 18th Avenue, Portland. Alec Soth will give a talk at the Portland Art Museum Whitsell Auditorium at 7 pm on April 19 with advanced tickets suggested. Photolucida is part of Portland Photo Month.
