“Dear Bernardo and the entire Exodus team,
Thank you for creating such an inspiring forum this year. It was the highlight of my year! I have attended hundreds of photography seminars, workshops and events over my career and can honestly say that the National Geographic Exodus Aveiro Festival was the best one yet. You had a diverse talent pool that covered a broad spectrum of interests so everyone had something to learn, including myself. I think the most important aspect was the environment you all created. It was intimate, authentic, inspiring and there was a sense of community which can be a very difficult thing to achieve. Everyone felt comfortable enough to connect with one another and that is when the real exchange of ideas happens.
Congratulations! You moved mountains and this is just the beginning!”
