"Over its 30-year history, FotoFest’s Meeting Place Portfolio Reviewshave been a launching pad for the careers of hundreds of photographic artists. Many artists have been discovered by this program and many reviewers have found new talent to exhibit, publish, collect, and represent. In 2016, FotoFest brings 165 international, professional reviewers to meet one-on-one with registered artists. They include museum curators, editors, publishers, gallerists, collectors, and photo agency representatives to review the work of 450 registered artists." (FotoFest)

I was honored to be one of the almost 50 Reviewers for the 1st of 4 Sessions for FotoFest’s Portfolio Reviews from March 12–April 24th. These are snapshots of a few of my colleagues during our short breaks. A complete list of Reviewers here.
