Last week, 35 international photography experts and 100 serious photographers from 15 countries gathered at the Swedish Museum of Photography (Fotografiska) in Stockholm for a series of one-on-one meetings, lectures, exhibitions, workshops and more.
Our first annual international portfolio review event in Sweden offered tremendous opportunities for every participant to meet, network, make friends, and talk about important issues touching on the business of photography, art, photojournalism, book publishing, magazines, marketing, the impact of the internet on the world of photography, and more.
Roundtable discussions covered topics about art galleries, photo festivals, collectors, and innovative new ways for photographers to pursue their passions with creativity and savvy business sense.
Fotografiska is a beautiful, comfortable, inviting setting. Each day’s events were planned and organized to make the most of this remarkable gathering of passionate people. So, it was intense, exhilarating, fun, inspiring, and even a bit exhausting. But everyone left filled with ideas, and lots of connections with colleagues and new friends from around the world.
Here is a slideshow of 101 snapshots from our time together.
Thanks to the photographers and expert reviewers who participated, and to the volunteers and hardworking staffs of Fotografiska and Lens Culture who made it happen. Cheers!
Now, we’re gearing up for our next international portfolio review in Paris this November 7-8-9, 2011. Sign up for our mailing list for the latest information!
