Event SOLD OUT- Thank you!
Photographers have more options than ever before for presenting their work as a book – and meanwhile the notion of the photo book itself is changing, no longer bound by the limitations of the traditional monograph. There is a burgeoning market for photography in book form, with many new publishers, dealers, and gallery imprints serving a rapidly growing number of collectors. This symposium will address issues of value to photographers and to anyone interested in photo books.
Presenters will share their deep knowledge of the field, bring books to show, and offer a broad overview of publishing strategies for photographers, with an emphasis on publishing as both a business and an art form.
