Freshlook 2011 "Lucie Portfolio Review" Istanbul - Turkey  Feb.2012


Web Publishing my portfolio review, organized by Lucie Foundation in Santa Monica LA.

"Congratulations! I am very happy to inform you that the Lucie Foundation jury has selected you to participate in Fresh Look 2011. It was a highly competitive process with hundreds of applications submitted from around the globe. Many thanks Nina C. Steenwyk"

"Lucie is a foundation that provides scholarships to young and talented photographers, organizes meetings on photography, and aims to make photography more respected in the world, apart from the international photography awards it gives every year to support the photography industry in Los Angeles. He held a pre-selection for the international meeting he planned in 2011 and chose 63 people. This meeting was to bring together critics from the world of well-known advertising, publishing, and media and selected portfolio owners. During the two-day meeting in Santa Monica LA, they expressed their thoughts and criticisms about the portfolio I presented. It was important for me to evaluate my photos with the eyes of a stranger and to see them through their window. But the most important of all was to be one of 63 photographers chosen from around the world."

"This work is suitable for a gallery. Not very traditional photographs but can be used to awaken society." Scott McKiernan of ZUMA Pres

"I like it very much as a concept, but especially when you look at it, the photos are very sad. Not an artwork, A cultural study" Leslie Burns of Burns Auto Parts Consulting
