Port folio reviews, talks and workshops at Copenhagen Photo Festival

17 DMJX students participated in port folio reviews, talks and workshops during the Networking Days, June 6 and 7, 2024, arranged by the Copenhagen Photo Festival. The DMJX students joined the Networking Days together with a large group of photo students from Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

Port folio reviews
On the first of the Networking Days, more than 30 picture editors, photographers, teachers, publishers and curators were available to the students for port folio reviews. Each of the participating students had minimum three reviews.

The four exhibiting photographers are Chloé Milos Azzopardi, Mafalda Rakoš, Marcus DeSieno and Emanuele Occhipinti.
