How to Survive Your Portfolio Review

The 2018 Photoville is in its last days at Brooklyn Bridge Park.  In addition to there being more than 90 photography exhibitions on display, photographers can also sign up for portfolio reviews.  I didn’t find out about the portfolio reviews until late last night by which time all the slots had been filled.  Nevertheless, the Photoville website referenced this short but helpful video full of tips for those who are interested signing up for portfolio reviews wherever they may be.

Shahn Mural in the Bronx General Post Office

I’m trying to be better about updating my photo blog.  Please forgive this and the previous post, which are a bit late, but I’m trying. . . . Consider this a renewed effort at sharing more about photographic work. During a recent visit to the Bronx General Post Office at 555 Grand Concourse (at the corner of 149th Street), I snapped a few photos using my Sony DSC RX III of its well-known New Deal-era murals.  They always make me pause when I’m in there. Thankfully, despite the turnover of the historic building to commercial owners, the murals will be preserved. .
