David Levi Strauss Chair, MFA Art Criticism & Writing, School of Visual Arts

NOTE: Jon Edward‘s words and photographs are featured in the January/February 2008 issue of Orion Magazine, and an expanded portfolio of “Weeder” is featured on Orion’s website. This is a professional relationship that began when Edwards attended the 2007 OUR WORLD juried portfolio review event sponsored by PhotoAlliance. Another great example of the value of investing in attending and following up with those you meet at portfolio review events!
