Michael Carroll recently reviewed photography portfolios as a part of 18th Annual Review Santa Fe Photo Festival. A multi-day festival, Review Santa Fe is a project of CENTER, and arts advocacy organization for “gifted and committed photographers” spearheaded by Executive Director, Laura Pressley.
Over the course of his review day, Michael dialogued and pored over work by Tim Franco, Cassi Alexandra, Fatemeh Baigmoradi, Jim Nickelson, Ilana Panich-Linsman, Marcus DeSieno, and Stas Bartnikas. Tim, Fatemah, and Ilana all had work with immigration as a major theme. Tim’s body of work focused on portraits and stories of North Korean defectors photographed—and now living in—South Korea. Fatemeh’s work had to do with burning counter-revolutionary family photos in the tumult of the 1979 Iranian Revolution. And Ilana documented the no-man’s land between migration and immigration at the U.S. Mexico border.
