Women Focus is holding its second portfolio review in Boston on March 7th, at Leica Gallery. If any of your women or nonbinary students might be interested, please let them know. We are also allowing professionals with less than five years of experience to apply, and we are especially interested in encouraging photographers of color to apply. The plan is for applications to open later today, and we expect to have room for only about 35 students. I know it’s a long way for your students to come, but just wanted to let you know in case you have recent alumni in the Boston area.
The portfolio reviews will be part of a larger Leica event running from March 5th to March 8th that will feature an exhibition and panel discussion honoring Leica grant winners Debi Cornwall, Eva Woolridge, and Yana Paskova on Friday. Maggie Steber, Laura Roumanos, and Lynn Johnson will also be speaking on another panel Sunday about diversity.
