Lunch and Learn

Lunch and Learn

with Aline Smithson and Alexa Dilworth

Saturday, September 20th


Join our 2014 Jurors for an informative, dynamic day of cutting-edge information and insight on your fine art photography journey, whether you are just beginning to think “portfolio” or ready to exhibit and publish.

The Morning Session: 10 am – 12 noon with Alexa Dilworth:

 In Words and Pictures

Alexa will be looking (and reading and conversing) about the relationship between text and images—as influences, as a way to think about creating work, and as a means for giving context and meaning to photographic sequences, short or long form, that will ultimately be published and exhibited. She will be sharing work both produced and presented by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University (CDS), including words and pictures from DoubleTake magazine, CDS Books, and CDS’s award programs, such as the Lange-Taylor Prize and the Documentary Essay Prizes in Photography and Writing.


Lunch from noon – 1:00 p

 For Full Day Ticket Holders, please indicate vegetarian or meat entrée when purchasing ticket.


 The Afternoon Session: 1 p – 3 p with Aline Smithson

 Creating a Fine Art Portfolio

Aline will present a lecture on what goes into creating a fine art portfolio, first demystifying what connotes a fine art project, then sparking ideas of how and where to begin.  The lecture continues with an explanation of what makes a successful portfolio and what the different arenas in the fine art market are looking for.  Finally, she will give ideas how to get your work successfully packaged and presented to the movers and shakers in the photo world.
