Critical portfolio reading is an excellent way for each photographer to promote his work. If the project is still in progress, the photographer may collect opinions for a more solid conclusion; if it is already completed the photographer may find reference locations where to exhibit. Finally, it should be noted that, on these occasions, the artist is able to come face to face with museum directors and photography centers, which might be of difficult access otherwise.

In an edition without the usual critical portfolio readings, IMAGO Lisboa Festival, in partnership with photographer Susana Paiva, organises a workshop aimed at all those who wish to optimize their portfolio for future presentation, in the framework of critical readings promoted by photography festivals.

The initiative will be held online resourting to two working groups, according to the chosen language - Portuguese or English, during 3 working sessions – two of them in groups and one individual session.

The participants in this event will have an assured participation in the portfolio readings for their selection during the next edition of IMAGO Lisboa Festival.
