“Recognizing that their voices are that of their ancestors, the oral traditions have survived centuries of abuse, genocide and misrepresentation by the non indigenous people, my story had just begun as I was shown a side of this powerful Nation that so few outsiders get to witness.” – Deborah Anderson
Book Making with Ralph Gibson
January 24 – 26, 2020
The photography book remains the foremost delivery system of a photographer’s vision. In the book the sum equals more than the parts. In the world of photography all the leading practitioners have made their work and their names known by way of a major publication. For many serious photographers, however, the book is a goal difficult to realize. Often the technical steps in making a book remain a mystery. This 3-day workshop and will deal with all aspects of the book making process. We will focus on the book “dummy” as an object in and of itself. An object developed to the level of presentation for final publication. Aspects of layout, design, double-page spreads, book cover impact and editorial thrust as well as binding, typography, separation for plate-making, distribution formulas and more will be addressed.
