Du Jour mention in FEATURE SHOOT
We appreciate this mention in Feature Shoot for our new project, Processed Views, a depiction of
Feature Shoot is run by photo editor and curator Alison Zavos and showcases work from up-and-coming photographers alongside established photographers who have completed a project or whose work has taken on a new direction. The site covers commercial and fine art photography, and is a resource through which photo editors, art directors, art buyers, and people with an interest in photography can discover new talent.
Established in 2008, Feature Shoot has an archive of over 2,000+ international photographers. In 2011, Feature Shoot was selected as a winner of LIFE.com’s 2011 Photo Blog Awards: ‘the Web’s 20 most compelling, most consistently insightful and surprising photography blogs.’
In addition to running Feature Shoot, Alison Zavos is active member of the broader photography community. She has reviewed portfolios for organizations such as ASMP, APA (Advertising Photographers of America) and The Art Directors Club. She has also spoken on various panels discussing topics such as the impact of new media, marketing, press and photography blogs and is a regular contributer to PDN’s Emerging Photographer magazine.
In the summer of 2010, she curated Sea Change, a group show as part of the Wassaic Summer Festival, which featured work from 25 New York photographers. As part of Photoville NYC (2012), Zavos co-curated a group exhibition entitled Underage, which featured work by six young photographers who document the joys and travails of growing up: a time of first loves, experimentation, and the search for belonging.
