Review LA 2011
I recently participated as a reviewer for Center’s west coast portfolio review event for emerging photographers, Review LA. It was a three day event that coincided with Photo l.a. and gave photographers incredible opportunities to share their work with curators, gallerists, publishers, and editors, with other photographers, and the public at large.
As someone who has attended many review events as an photographer, and several as a reviewer, I have come to appreciate this process, which is totally unique to the photographic medium. Where else can a photographer get this kind of focused attention and exposure to their work? I know from experience that the event is equally exhausting and invigorating, and all come away filled up with ideas, fresh perspectives, and new friendships.
For those unable to attend, I thought I’d share a visual diary of the events. All photographs by Jasmine Safaeian.

Friday night marked the Portfolio Walk, where all the Review LA particpants shared work with reviewers, friends, and the general public. Photographers made sales, connected with the community, and added fans to their mailing lists.
Thank you to Center, in particular, Laura Pressley, for the tremendous efforts extended to provide exposure and opportunity for so many photographers.
