Folio Friday

Event duration: 11.30 - 17.00 for presenting photographers

Photographers receive feedback on their work during this regular portfolio afternoon. Resident host Steve Macleod and March's guest reviewer the writer, curator and founding editor of the online magazine Photomonitor, Christiane Monarchi, will make presentations and review work. Later in the afternoon gallery visitors are invited to meet and talk with presenting photographers.

The programme is free for participating photographers, and included with an exhibition day pass for all members of the public.

Further notes for photographers interested in participating:

Folio Fridays present an opportunity for you to present your work to the The Photographers’ Gallery’s audiences.  Each photographer gets an 80x120cm white table and three chairs, one for you and two for your visitors to sit and view your work. A power socket (if required), and an A4 stand up sign with your name are also provided.

Our resident host for these sessions is photographer and educator Steve Macleod, as well as Creative Director at Metro Imaging. A guest speaker is also invited for each session. Both Steve and the guest speaker also meet with each photographer as part of the afternoon. The event is free for those presenting and complementary lunch is served for all participating photographers.

The schedule runs as such:

11.30 arrive & set up

12.00 lunch & a presentation by the resident host and a guest speaker

13.00 photographers meet and look at each others work

14.00 doors open to the public

17.00 end of event

Photographers are required to be present for the entire duration of the event.

If you have presented your work in the last two years,  please wait and give others an opportunity.
