Join CPW for a very special portfolio review event where you’ll have the opportunity to show your work to some of the most distinguished and important professionals in photography today. Held in NYC, in a supportive setting, you will have your work reviewed by five noted luminaries in one-on-one twenty-minute sessions. Reviews can provide you with constructive feedback, new directions, and perhaps that jolt of inspiration to take the next step. Testimonies from last year’s participants included: “great feedback by committed and engaged reviewers”, “informative and inspirational”, “one-of-a-kind, unpretentious, and fun”, “a great place to trade ideas”, “encouraging, helpful, and insightful”, “I got what I was looking for and made connections”, “open minded, honest, and thoughtful”, “it changed me and helps break barriers to the NY art world”.

In the JUNE session you will meet with Patrick Amsellem, Curator at the Brooklyn Museum of Art; Sean Corcoran, Curator of Prints and Photographs at the Museum of the City of New York; Michael Foley, founder of Foley Gallery; Carlo McCormick, Paper Magazine; and Lonnie Schlein, Photography Editor at The New York Times. In the SEPTEMBER session you will meet with Darren Ching, Creative Director at Photo District News and co-owner Klompching Gallery; Jon Feinstein, Curatorial Director at the Humble Arts Foundation; Jodie Vicenta Jacobson, Curator at The Horticultural Society of New York; Joanna Lehan, Associate Editor of Books at the Aperture Foundation; and Sasha Wolf, owner of Sasha Wolf Gallery. The reviewers in the DECEMBER session will be announced in September. Additionally a representative from CPW will also be reviewing work at each session.
