Presentation Text: Traditionally organized as physical meetings within the framework of international photography festivals, portfolio reviews are a highly efficient form of communication. Artists meet experts, present their work, receive feedback and, over time, develop their artistic practice as well as their career. Portfolio Dialogue takes this successful concept one step further by providing an online platform for professional portfolio reviews and mentoring – no longer exclusively for photographers but for visual artists.
