San Diego-based annual festival attracts talented photographers for virtual workshops, lectures and more with several in-person exhibitions and outdoor shows.
The ten-day Medium Festival of Photography kicks off in San Diego this week, with a multi-pronged approach to handling a conference in a pandemic.
Medium Photo was founded in 2012 by Scott B. Davis to bring workshops, lectures and portfolio reviews to the photography world and basing it in San Diego. The annual festival aims to draw talent from across the globe, but remains strongly rooted in San Diego’s photography and art scene.
But how can a conference-style festival, rich with exhibitions, mixers, hands-on portfolio reviews and workshops — manage during the COVID pandemic?
Keynote lecture with Catherine Opie: Saturday March 6 at 4 p.m.
Local keynote simulcasts:
- Art Produce, 3139 University Ave., North Park
- The Photographer’s Eye, 326 E. Grand Ave., Escondido (register here)
