Albertina D’Urso (Italy)
In 2011, I became a member of FotoVisura.com and self-published my personal project “From Dust to God” to my FV-profile. A few days later, the project was selected for Visura Magazine’s “Your View”. Then, one of the images was selected as FotoVisura’s “Photo of the day”, which was spotted by Brett Roegiers, photo editor at CNNPhotos, who then published the complete project a few months later, right before the Navratri Festival.
Alexandros Demetriades (Cyprus) I became a member on FotoVisura.com in 2011. As an emerging photographer, any exposure is good exposure; so, I decided to take the plunge. To be honest, I liked the look and ease on which one could upload one’s pictures; the platform has a clean interface and a very tactile feel to the way one can manage his/her portfolios. However, what makes the difference at FV is not the back end, or the front end—but the way it’s run by its curators. It immediately felt attentive, helpful and there is a personal touch in everything they do. Adriana, one of the site’s curators and co-founders is one of the reasons why FV is so special. She really cares and not only does it show but that’s what makes the whole difference. Last year, I was invited to show my work on Visura Magazine’s Spotlight section curated by co-founder, Graham Letorney. This year, I was spotted by the the New York Times Lens Blog through FV.com to feature my work. Who knows what my future holds but all I can say is, thanks guys for getting me this far!View FV Profile
Annabel Clark (USA) After having my work published in Visura Magazine, I became a member of FotoVisura in order to submit a new project for the 2011 FotoVisura grant. I was surprised and delighted to receive second place for my project “Carmen and Lupita”. Soon after, the project was featured on the New York Times Lens Blog, which led to getting the story published in several international magazines. In the summer of 2012, Adriana and Graham invited me to the Visura Lodge Artist Residency, where I spent a week editing and shaping my project with their guidance, and had an invaluable 3 hour editing session with Denise Wolff from Aperture Foundation. Adriana and Graham provide endless opportunities beyond the FotoVisura website, from exhibitions and events to consultations and portfolio reviews with top editors in the field. I am grateful to be a part of this exciting community that continues to grow.View FV Profile
Erin Trieb (USA) 2011 FotoVisura Grant Winner Receiving the 2011 FotoVisura Grant was one of the highlights of my year. Grant directors Adriana Teresa and Graham Letorney have immersed themselves in the future of my project by providing various outlets for my work, including several gallery exhibitions like at NYC’s United Photo Industries, PhotoVille, and an exhibition at Third Floor Gallery in England; the opportunity to speak at Powerhouse Arena during New York Photo Festival; and an invitation to The Visura Lodge Artist Residency in Stowe, Vermont. The press from the grant led to further attention from editors, publications, and other organizations, but what I have found most meaningful is that Adriana and Graham believe in my project and have invested heavily in its development, which is a unique and wonderful thing. They really care about supporting photographers, the importance of their work, and seeing that work come to fruition.View FV Profile
Being an emerging photographer in Italy is not easy, and it is thanks to platforms like FotoVisura that my work has been seen by a broader audience, including editors and curators around the world—an exposure that has led to new opportunities.”View FV Profile
Receiving the FotoVisura grant has been like being adopted into a supportive family, all there to nurture and encourage my growth. The grant is one of the only in this industry that is really concerned with the development of the recipient. While most other awards are designed as financially supportive boosts, the FotoVisura grant has longevity. Almost two years after receiving it, I am still benefiting from all the angles of support. Adriana Teresa, and the rest of the family at FotoVisura, has crafted a thoughtful and comprehensive platform that includes every possibility of advancing a career forward: from various exhibiting, publishing, teaching, editing, and lecturing opportunities. The FotoVisura team has gone out of their way to help me realize my dreams like only an encouraging family can do. View FV Profile
Now I realize that becoming a FotoVisura member is a big deal, not just because of the grant, but for being the bridge to show my work to the best editors in the world.
Freelance photographers should not let this unique opportunity pass. It is a great project lead by two mad-romantic people that really know photography and simply are wonderful, accessible and willing to help any time.View FV Profile
I arrived to Vermont exhausted from my last trip to Brazil with hard drives full of images and a lot disconnected ideas about my project. During those ten days, Adriana and Graham helped clarify my ideas and they edited my personal project. It was during those days, that my project “Urban Quilombo” was finally alive. The body of work we created there won the 2012 Remi Ochlick Award and the 2012 POYi Community Awareness Award. In addition, the way they helped me conceptualize my photographic work and develop my ideas allowed me receive financial support to continue my work in Brazil with grants from the Magnum Foundation and The Getty Editorial Grant. Today, they are one of my few confidants about my ongoing projects. The most important thing for me is the fact that they really take care about what they do: they love what they do, and this attitude is a rare gem in this universe.View FV Profile
