PORTFOLIO REVIEW

This year Landskrona Foto Festival will again be inviting photographers to a Portfolio Review. The primary purpose is that the show will lead to an offer for the participating photographers to exhibit their work at festivals and events around the world.

Previous years have seen good results, with participants having been invited to festivals in Derby, Leipzig, Dublin and Athens as a direct result of taking part in our reviews. Several photo books have also been published.

 

For the second year Beate Cegielska from Gallry Image in Århus, Denmark and Austrian curator Moritz Neumüller will lead the work with the Portfolio Review.

Beate Cegielska has since the 90´s curated a great amount of group- and solo exhibitions by Danish and International artists in Europe, South Korea, China and India. She has also under several years participated as a review during many different photo festivals around our globe.

Moritz Neumüller is Head of Education on European Master of Fine Art Photography in Madrid and runs since 2010 Curator Ship – a platform for photographing and image culture. In 2009 he founded ArteConTacto – A project that aimed to explore art through all senses.

 

The Portfolio will take place the 15-16th of September in the Landskrona City hall. The winning contribution will be exhibit during Landskrona Foto Festival 2019.
