By providing the reading and orientation skills gained over the years, PHROOM has decided to give the opportunity to authors from all over the world to make their work known through a one-to-one confrontation aimed at helping the authors to identify, from a practical and theoretical point of view, their voice.
Offering itself as a moment of confrontation and care in which to examine all the aspects that shape a work and its communication, the portfolio review aims to help, through practical advice and theoretical ideas, those who wish to finalize their photographic art practice in a contemporary and international context such as the one to which PHROOM has access.
In short, what does portfolio review consist of?
Simple, during a portfolio review, you sit down with the PHROOM editorial staff to talk about your work, examine the various aspects of your practice from a practical-technical and theoretical point of view and receive useful advice to continue your path more effectively and intelligently, identifying the most suitable contexts and ways to promote your work.
