Flash Forward Festival
Isa was on a panel discussion at the Flash Forward Festival in Boston, MA entitled, “Portfolio Reviews: Should I Go? What Should I Know?” The discussion was moderated by Stella Kramer and included Charles Guice and Rania Matar. In her remarks, Isa discussed the impact portfolio reviews had on the development of her Elderly Animals project: “Before Photo NOLA and Fotofest, I had thought of my Elderly Animals work as a therapeutic exercise and as not an actual project. I thought I would only share these images with family and friends and never exhibit them publicly. I was astounded by the level of support I received from reviewers at these events. It made me realize these images had a larger meaning than the highly personal one they had for me.” The discussion is archived online in 5 parts: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.
