One of the strong recommendations he made was for a new artist to participate in one of the portfolio reviews held during photo art fairs around the country.

The current issue of PDN has a good article expanding on Mr. Foley’s thoughts about new artists’ aspirations and should be of interest to a number of our photographer readers. His current focus is Lydia Panas.

Michael operates an impressive gallery in New York City with a solid roster of talent. He has worked in great company during his career with associations in the past with other dealers ,such as, Howard Greenberg.
