We talk to a lot of gallerists and one way to catch their attention, as a new photography talent, is to attend one of the numerous portfolio reviews held around the country.

Hosted by multiple organizations and using top gallerists, critics, publishers, etc. as reviewers … it is a great way to receive valuable input and make connections.

A new article in PDN offers an overview of some of the choices open to portfolio review newcomers:

On the other hand, there are reviews like the one at En Foco, a non-profit dedicated to cultural diversity in photography, held annually with about 20 curators and editors and focusing mainly on fine-art/lens-based work and documentary photography. And at The Center for Photography at Woodstock the aim is to help newcomers. "CPW’s events are first and foremost about nurturing the voices of emerging photographers," says CPW’s executive director Ariel Shanberg. "At its core, CPW’s portfolio review offerings are workshops, intended to give each participant the opportunity to meet with each participating reviewer and be exposed to a range of perspectives and outlets for photography."
