Photo Festival 2011
The 6th Palm Springs Photo Festival gets underway next Sunday, March 27, in the warm desert air of Palm Springs, California. Over 700 photographers, curators, gallery directors, photo editors, advertising agency creative directors, music company creatives, art directors, art buyers and educators will convene for this annual photography summit.
Nowhere in the world does such an event exist. PSPF is not Arles (exhibitions), not Maine (workshops), not Fotofest (reviews). The Palm Springs Photo Festival incorporates six days and five nights of 16-hour days filled with workshops by such maitre photographers as Graciela Iturbide, Arno Rafael Minkkinen, Peter Turnley, Doug Menuez, Amy Arbus, Christopher Griffith, Todd Hido, Keith Carter and others, seminars on important topics throughout each day, daily symposium discussions, four Evening Presentations, over 1000 portfolio reviews, prizes, and parties. With over 55 sponsors integrally involved, the festival is also a showcase for all the latest gear, software and products.
