Hannah Frieser is the Executive Director of the Center for Photography at Woodstock, an arts organization that features exhibitions, workshops, and residencies. She has curated exhibitions with leading contemporary photographers. Her essays have been featured in publications and monographs, such as Contact Sheet,Exposure, and Nueva Luz. For nine years, Hannah was Director of Light Work, a photographic arts organization with exhibition and residency programs in Syracuse, New York. Together with Charles Guice, she is currently developing an online initiative, Converging Perspectives, which examines photography from around the world from a culturally sensitive viewpoint.
Frieser has reviewed portfolios and juried exhibitions worldwide for FotoFest, En Foco, Rhubarb Rhubarb, PhotoVisa, folioPORT and FotoTriennale.dk, among others, and has served on review panels for organizations such as the New York Council on the Arts.
Frieser is especially interested in reviewing work by photographers who understand their intentions as artists. She is actively seeking a diverse mix of artists who are at critical points in their careers and would benefit from exposure through exhibitions, essays, or residencies. While interested in all types of portfolios, only limited feedback can be provided to commercial portfolios, traditional nudes or travel photography. As a reviewer, she offers professional feedback and opportunities within the field. Portfolios may be presented as completed bodies of work or mid-project.
