Program Description

Image Threads is excited to offer a free online mentorship program. For this initiative, the collective members as well as other participating photographers and bookmakers will be making themselves available to those looking for periodic dialogue and critique on an ongoing body of photographic work intended for book form. Mentoring is free of charge and will take place virtually on a bi-weekly basis, over the course of 2-3 months (a more precise schedule will be determined by each mentor and participant.) As the program is being conducted on a volunteer basis, each mentor will be selecting a limited number of projects—those we feel are best-suited to the format and to our mentors’ respective areas of expertise. In the spirit of Image Threads’ mission, preference will be given to individuals without access to comparable educational opportunities.
