Crazy enough to try…but why not? Photo books are still a big part of fine art photography all over the world. This workshop is not technically oriented, but more about how you use your photography. It will include many discussions and thinking about what your images can express. Use a mixture of your archives, found photos and new images along with your narrative to publish a 16 page zine of your own. The class will include some studio and on-location shooting, post production and editing, and binding of the books; culminating in an exhibition of the books produced. Intermediate to Advanced
