FotoFest's "Intense" Moscow Portfolio Review Gets Wall Street Journal Shout-Out
Houston's own FotoFest International got some national love today on the Wall Street Journal Web site for its Moscow portfolio review, which wrapped up September 2. The story, "Free Market Exposure," was written by William Meyers, a photographer in his own right.
Meyers describes the "intense" atmosphere inside Moscow's Garage Center for Contemporary Culture as 180 photographers (whittled down from more than 2,000) had their portfolios critiqued by professionals from around the world.
But the article also profiles some leaders in the world of Russian photography, including gallery owners and publishers, who hope to help young photographers gain exposure, one of the missions of the portfolio review.
