Photo Vogue Festival

This November Shutter Hub Creative Director Karen Harvey will be joining the Photo Vogue Festival in Milan, Italy to offer one-on-one portfolio reviews. The Photo Vogue Festival is the first conscious fashion photography festival dedicated to the common ground between ethics and aesthetics. The festival will be held physically from the 18-21 November, and will be online from 18 November.

The 2021 event, curated by Alessia Glaviano, Chiara Bardelli Nonino and Francesca Marani, will be the sixth edition of the Photo Vogue Festival, which features talks, exhibitions and portfolio reviews and will be a unique opportunity to come into contact with a showcase of innovative photography and industry leaders. The exhibitions feature the theme “Reframing History”, an ‘exploration of projects that aim to present an alternate view, reinventing neglected historical figures or questioning stereotyped narratives.’
