The Reviewers

With Photo Fora, our goal is to provide Indian photographers the opportunity to connect with leading practitioners of the field from around the world. These experts bring with them not only a plethora of experience in globally renowned art institutions but also a deep understanding of the photographic arts. Leveraging this invaluable ecosystem of experts, we have curated a diverse panel to be chosen from for portfolio reviewing.

We encourage you to read through each of their profiles and select the ones who wish to have as a reviewer of your portfolio. For multiple opinions, you can select more than one reviewer.
