WHAT IS PORTFOLIO REVIEW?
A portfolio review is a meeting, lasting 20 minutes, where a photographer brings his/her photos, either on paper or digitally and shows the reviewer in question.
Reviewers are both Icelandic and international specialists in their fields; museum directors, museum/gallery curators or editors of photographic journals. Besides from giving participants guidance on their work they can offer various opportunities e.g. participating in festivals and/or exhibitions in Iceland and/or abroad.
