Here’s a great, detailed recap from Photolucida regarding their recent State of Photography in Portland event at Disjecta. Hundreds of us photographers gathered to talk about what’s working and what we can improve from a community standpoint. The panel largely focused on the art photography realm, but there’s plenty to chew on for photographers of all stripes.
Topics included the struggle to build community support for nonprofits and the arts, the city’s supposed inferiority complex, grants and funding, the importance of framing what a “photo community” can be, and Photolucida’s own Portland Photo Month coming up in April.
Pour yourself a cup of coffee and dig in.
