The Meeting Place
Zone Zero

May 8, 2006

I was invited to attend FotoFest once again this year. It's usually in my capacity as a "reviewer of portfolios". I am not sure if this is accurate, but I think the idea of reviewing portfolios was born at FotoFest, if not, then they surely elevated this practice to a fine art, which then has been imitatated the world over by other festivals. But be that as it may, what happens at FotoFest is very worthy for all those involved, in every sense of the word.
