Friday 18th and Sayurday 19th of may 2018

Taught by Enric Montes and Israel Ariño (Ediciones Anómalas)

Aimed at: Photographers, students, and people interested in photography editing who wish to broaden their creative horizons and want to place their efforts on the book as the final object of their photography project.

Objectives: The student will gain the necessary knowledge to convert a photography project into a photobook through the study and analysis of all the aspects related to editing, both at the narrative and conceptual level in addition to the technical and production ones, to make its publishing possible.

Special emphasis is placed on organizing the images for a better reading and understanding of the book content, as well as in the new formats and prevailing dissemination and distribution platforms derived from the current self-publishing boom.

Throughout the workshop numerous examples of photobooks will be shown, which will help to analyze all aspects of the course.

On Saturday there will be a review of projects from those students who so desire.
