Photolucida Events You Can Attend
Kicking Things off Tomorrow, Already!
It's hard to believe Photolucida is upon us so quickly. The big events kick off tomorrow with a sold-out collecting lecture with Julia Dolan and Charles Hartman. But, there are three other Photolucida events that are open to the public that you might enjoy. In case you didn't know, Photolucida is a Portfolio Review event that happens every two years here in Portland. The events brings together photography curators and photographers for a speed dating-style event. If you want to keep up with the hottest photographers working in the field today this is the event.
Photolucida is just one part of Portland Photo Month. Click here for a complete roundup of events, gallery shows and venues celebrating what we hope will become an annual event.
