present your work for portfolio reviews
Susanne Fessé — Workshop



CFF – Centrum för fotografi, Stockholm

Tjärhovsgatan 44
116 28 Stockholm

Tel: +46 86 402 095


The purpose of the workshop is to give participants confidence in presenting their work, such as portfolio reviews. Contributors will in group show their work and get advice from Susanne Fessé to help develop their review and prepare the best portfolio in text and images.

The workshop focuses on the actual conditions of a portfolio review. That is, how much time is available? Who gives criticism / response? What image selection should be shown? How important is a well-prepared text description? What narrative does the photographer presents in his work?

Participants prepare the workshop by writing a project description, an artist statement and questions for the workshop meeting. Susanne Fessé will send out checklists a few weeks before workshop to help participants prepare the written text.
