Workshop on photobook editing with J.M. Colberg (expert in photobook making and editing)
JM Colberg is recognized photobook and photography critic, for many years running his online magazine CPHmag with photobook reviews articles on contemporary photography.
Workshop will be held in English.
Getting from a set of photographs to a fully realized photobook is
often harder than expected. Editing and sequencing for a book often
pose considerable challenges for photographers. In this workshop,
strategies to get past these challenges are explored, with a focus on
creating "building blocks" for larger book edits/sequences.
Photobooks cannot be made without pictures. So photographers are
required to have
1. a fully realized or 90% finished project, with
ideally at least 30 photographs (more are never a problem). The
workshop will be held in English.
2. Accepted photographers need to bring the following to the workshop:
- One (cheap) blank spiral-bound notebook (A4)
- At least one set of work prints of their project (A5), ideally two (A5
and A4 - so there would be two sizes for each picture)
- Removable double-sided tape or removable glue dots
day 1: 14:00 - 17:00
day 2: 10:00 - 13:00 and 14:00 - 17:00
day 3: 10:00 - 13:00 and 14:00 - 17:00
Costs of the workshop (food and accomodation are not included) 1600 PLN or 380 Euro, paid till April 10th.
Workshop will take place in Warsaw, Lubelska 30/32.
