Smithson by Dudik

The ACP Portfolio Review on Saturday, October 10th, is filling-up! (And the two additional workshops only have a few spaces left...)

We're fired-up about our list of reviewers this year, and wanted to share with you bios of a few of the reviewers (and their photos, of course). Here's Aline Smithson!

Register for the ACP 2015 Portfolio Review today!

Aline Smithson

Aline Smithson is a photographic artist, educator, and the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Lenscratch. She curates and jurors exhibitions for a number of galleries, organizations, and magazines. In addition, she is a reviewer and workshop instructor at many photo festivals across the United States. In 2014, Aline received the Excellence in Teaching Award by CENTER and her work was selected for the Critical Mass Top 50 Portfolios, Review Santa Fe, and the PDN Photo Annual. In 2012, Aline was recognized with the Rising Star Award through the Griffin Museum of Photography for her contributions to the photographic community.

After a career as a New York Fashion Editor, Aline is now represented by galleries in the U.S. and Europe and published throughout the world. She has exhibited widely including numerous solo and group exhibitions and her work is held in a number of public collections. Her photographs have been featured in publications including PDN, the PDN Photo Annual, Communication Arts Photo Annual, Eyemazing, Soura, Visura, Fraction, Artworks, Diffusion, Rangefinder, Lenswork Extended, Shots, Pozytyw, and Silvershotz magazines. She is a founding member of the Six Shooter Collective and will release a retrospective monograph, Self and Others, published by the Magenta Foundation, in Fall 2015. Aline lives and works in Los Angeles.

Aline is interested in meeting photographers both emerging and established, and is open to all genres of photography. She hopes to see work that is cohesive, created with intention, and deeply considered. She can offer critical feedback on projects in progress and suggest arenas for completed series, also offering suggestions on the articulation of the work. She is looking for series to feature on Lenscratch and to feature in future curatorial projects.
