One of the first things I was going to post was my experience reviewing portfolios at Arles, but before I get to that I’d just announce that there are free portfolio reviews and a day of discussions at Open House in Ffotogallery (Penarth, Cardiff). I think that there are very mixed views on the usefulness of sessions like these, specially when usually they are cash cows with hefty costs (although the expenses of organising them can be quite something too). People reviewing on the day are photographers like Helen Sears, and gallerists like Clare Grafik from Photographers’ Gallery¬† and myself from Third Floor Gallery. I won’t be around for very long as I have to go to a wedding in the afternoon, but if you’re looking for value for no money, sign up! ūüėČ
