“I’m primarily interested to see work with subject matter concerning social, cultural, political and environmental issues, and with themes connected to human experience.
Meeting for portfolio reviews offers an excellent opportunity to engage with dedicated photographers and to consider projects for publication. I regularly review portfolios at the Voies Off Festival in Arles (France) during opening week of the annual Les Rencontres d’Arles – and have published work I discovered there. Annually, I review well over a thousand projects, and am always enthusiastic to see more.
It is most helpful when photographers come to a review with questions and a focus on what feedback they want to come away with. From our meeting, you can expect that I will be engaged to ask about your overall approach and to clarify what your purpose is in creating the work, and to comment on areas most useful for your continuing practice.
I can assist with aspects of your conceptual process and suggest ideas for layering your work with other materials that could form part of a book. I’m also happy to answer any questions you may have about the book publishing process.”
