Our latest Workshop in Bucharest (2020)

For any photographer, the recording of images is the first part of their journey with a story. The process that begins after the camera has been put down is often more challenging. The photographer is required to reflect, to speak and even to write so that their work can have a full life.

In our Photobook Workshops, it is this life and afterlife that we will be concerned with: it is about the creation of photobooks on the one hand, as well as about rethinking the project in the context of a photobook as a specific medium, on the other hand. We work closely with the participants on the production of a dummy from their own photo projects, focusing on the analysis of the project, editing, sequencing, design and the importance and choice of materials in the production of photobooks. Photobook Workshops culminate with each participant creating a physical photobook dummy.
