Every other April, an international set of photographers and reviewers gather in Portland, Oregon for a five-day celebration of photography that includes lectures, workshops, and exhibition collaborations. Intensive portfolio reviews are at the heart of the Festival. Reviewers are selected for their experience, involvement, and commitment to advancing the work of emerging and mid-career artists. Over the years, many participants have made contacts that have led directly to exhibitions, publications, and sales, in addition to receiving useful critiques.

By providing a venue for in-depth, informed, and supportive dialogue between photographers, gallery owners, curators, publishers, editors, and consultants, Photolucida promotes the culture of photography locally, nationally, and internationally. The next Portfolio Reviews Festival will take place in April 2013.

"ROAD" is a photo competition and exhibition to be judged and curated by W. M. Hunt, a well-known collector, curator and consultant based in New York City. "ROAD" is meant to include a wide range of photographs from landscape to portraiture, anything that suggests a journey. The road can be personal: a psychological or spiritual passage. Or it can be literal. The range is from transcendence to travel... It can takeplace in your head or in your backyard or in your car.

Twenty years after the Nicaraguan civil war ended Kevin Kunishi traveled throughout the highlands of Northern Nicaragua. Kunishi revisits this location in an attempt to discover and document the legacy that this protracted war left behind. A selection of the resulting portraits of survivors, both Sandinistas and Contras, as well as exquisite landscapes are gathered together here in Kunishi's first monograph.

The photographs within Los Restos are notational records of the experience of the collective memory of those involved. Althought at one time sharply divided by two polarized political philosophies, the survivors are now bound by a landscape filled with physical and psychological scars. The markers of affiliation are slowly fading, but the horrors of war remain.

For four months in 2011, Aaron Vincent Elkaim lived among the residents of Fort Mckay, in northeastern Alberta Canada. Fort Mckay sits on top of the Athabasca oil sands, and is also the home of citizens from the Cree and Dene First Nations. The reserve relies nearly exclusively on the extraction of oil. Through his photographic interactions with the population of Fort Mckay, Elkaim explores the ways in which members of these indigenous communities negotiate the tensions between modernity, development and age old traditions.

On view September 28, 2012-December 31, 2012

A podcast featuring a narration of Elkiam's work will be online at www.daylightbooks.org this October.
