The Eyes On Portfolio Review has been organised this year for the first time in collaboration with the Month of Photography Bratislava. The following editions of the Review will alternate annually between Vienna and Bratislava.
The next Portfolio Review will take place in November 2017 in Bratislava.

 

What is it all about?

The Eyes On Portfolio Review brings photographers and renowned experts together in one place to enable practitioners of artistic and documentary photography to discuss their work with curators, editors, gallery owners, and festival directors.

Eyes On will invite around thirty Austrian and international experts to Vienna. Participants will be able to present their portfolios and receive feedback on their output in twenty-minute one-on-one meetings. They will also have an opportunity to try and place their works in exhibitions, magazines, or photography festivals and build an international network. The exchange of ideas among the participants is another important component of the event.

The Portfolio Review will conclude with an Open Review session during which all experts will look through the gathered works and select the best portfolio. The winner will be invited to present his or her photographs in Bildrecht GmbH’s exhibition space during Eyes On 2018.
