February 23, 11am

Rose M. Cromwell, Adam Pape, and Nelson Chan

Share your work in The Humid’s first portfolio review with Rose Marie Cromwell, Adam Pape, and Nelson Chan—three professional, award winning photographers involved in book publishing, editorial assignments, exhibiting, and photography education (full bios below). This is an invaluable chance to receive artistic feedback and professional advice in three personal, one-on-one conversations. Participants of all levels are invited to show prints, books, and/or digital formats for viewing. Adam, Rose, and Nelson are eager to see developing projects, as well as those ready for publication and will give guidance from personal experience and successes. The reviews will be held at The Humid in Athens, GA.

Come back in the evening for a free talk by the artists, a book signing of their new monographs, and a reception.

Fee: $90 for three 25 minute reviews; $75 for students
