Photobook Workshop with Calin Kruse and Yana Kruse / dienacht Publishing

April 25—28, 2022
Photographie Mon Amour

This workshop is part of the Festival 'Photographie Mon Amour' in Metz, France.

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.

The Workshop 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 will 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.

This workshop culminates with each participant creating a photobook dummy.

Maximum 6 Participants. The workshop will be held in English.
