Thank you to Keynote Lecturer Cristina de Middel who spoke on July 31, 7pm
Thank you to all of our reviewers and participants for joining us on the wild ride of an online weekend-long portfolio review event. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
To celebrate the photographers participating in NEPR 2020 we offer the Artist Index. It is a FREE PDF produced by the Griffin Museum of Photography and the Photographic Resource Center listing participating photographers and those who planned to show work in person at the portfolio walk. The document was designed and produced by Meg Birnbaum, the Griffin Museum of Photography’s freelance designer. Click HERE to download your copy.
ABOUT NEPR: The NEPR weekend is a great opportunity for emerging and established photographers to meet with curators, gallerists, educators, and other image professionals in the busy New England photography world and beyond. The reviews are hosted in partnership with The Griffin Museum of Photography and the Photographic Resource Center.
