Photobook Workshop with Calin Kruse and Yana Kruse / dienacht Publishing

March 3—5, 2022
Centre Claude Cahun

This is a photobook making Workshop where 6 photographers team up with 6 graphic designers and under the supervision of dienacht Publishing team will go through the complete process of the creation of a photobook (dummy).

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.

Each team (1 photographer + 1 graphic designer) will be encouraged to take their own approach in the creation of the book, where both photographer and designer could best express themselves and convey the idea of the project.

Designers and design students are welcome to apply to learn to work with the medium of photobook. Photobook Workshop will culminate with each team creating a physical photobook dummy. Teams will be formed by dienacht.

The Workshop will be held in English. It will be held during the Journées de la photographie à Nantes.
