The photo book is an ideal space for photographers to realize and share their work to a wide audience that can experience the images as printed matter in its totality. It is a place where the photograph becomes held and felt. A space that brings together photographic and non-photographic materials, creating a tactile experience and physical object that is more than the sum of its parts. For many photographers, navigating the many options to design, material, binding and edition size can be a daunting task. A task that many photographers rely on a publisher to do the lifting for.
Through lectures, demonstrations and group discussion, this intimate in-person workshop will provide participants with the baseline knowledge of how to operate within the ever-changing world of photo book publishing. Topics will include how/when to contact a publisher, managing expectations of both artist and publisher in relation to book design, costs covered by artist relative to those (sometimes) covered by the publisher, distribution of books, pros and cons to self-publishing, navigating contracts, production, fundraising and an array of additional topics that are within the gravitational force of the photo book publishing world.
