Hannah Frieser & Charles Guice
“We are especially interested in reviewing work by photographers who understand their intentions as artists. As reviewers, we can offer professional feedback and opportunities within the field. Portfolios may be presented as completed bodies of work or mid-project.”
Hannah Frieser and Charles Guice will be reviewing portfolios together. They are currently developing the initiative Converging Perspectives that will promote dialogue about contemporary photography, its practitioners and innovative exhibitions from an international perspective.
Additionally, Hannah represents the Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW). Artists will be considered for CPW’s programming as well.
