FotoFest has collaborated with Lens Culture and is taking “The Meeting Place” on the road! This November, for three days prior PARIS PHOTO, hosted at the urban campus of Speos Paris Photographic Institute:
Lens Culture FotoFest Paris 2010
From the website:
Lens Culture FotoFest Paris 2010 will be
3 days of meetings and portfolio reviews with
120 photographers from around the world and
40 international photography experts.
The event offers all participants tremendous opportunities to share knowledge, connections and insights.
Participating photographers will get expert feedback about their work and have the possibility of getting editorial assignments, book publication contracts, art gallery representation, and feature articles in magazines, online and in print.
The one-to-one meetings with influential decision-makers in the photography field offer photographers opportunities to advance their career development and connect them to people who can help them with artistic and business goals.
In turn, the invited reviewers — museum curators, gallery owners, festival directors, publishers, representatives from photo agencies — will have the chance to discover new talent as well as the latest work of photographers who are already established.
Lens Culture FotoFest Paris takes place immediately before Paris Photo, and during the Month of Photography in Paris.
Paris Photo is the world’s largest international fair and marketplace for contemporary photography.
The Month of Photography in Paris, one of the world’s first urban photography festivals, features photography-related exhibits and events at more than 50 locations throughout Paris.
The Paris portfolio review is modeled on FotoFest’s internationally respected Meeting Place® portfolio review that FotoFest pioneered more than 20 years ago in Houston. Over the past 20 years — in Houston, as well as in dozens of other cities worldwide — similar professional reviews have been the catalysts for exhibitions, publications, and wider acclaim for many artists.
Lens Culture FotoFest Paris 2010 will be the very first, large-scale international review of this format to take place in Paris.”
