I'm in Portland, Oregon for the rest of this week for the Photolucida Portfolio Reviews Festival. A few months ago, I was accepted to the reviews for Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Photolucida is the same concept on a much, much larger scale. ACP reviews are a single day event, including a portfolio walk. The Photolucida reviews last for four days. Which, at the moment, to me means four times the panic and the I'm-not-worthy-what-the-hell-was-I-thinking moments.
I mentioned earlier I'm working on a couple of different personal projects. One of them is about religious faithful and the books or texts they use in their practice. So far I've photographed Buddhist monks doing their daily reading, a weekly Torah study and a couple of weeks ago, an Ash Wednesday service at an A.M.E. service.
