Photobook: From Concept To Publication with Mariela Sancari
Professional Workshop


This workshop will explore the stages behind creating a photobook – from conceptualising a photobook and editing/sequencing of images to designing, selecting of format and size, printing and binding of the photobook. Participants will also get to look at the different ways of financing and promoting a photobook.

Participants will learn to review a wide variety of photobooks with a critical approach, focusing on the construction and development of the narrative presented in the books. The aim of the workshop is to work on the conceptualisation of each participant’s project, analyzing its relationship with materials and formats to communicate their ideas and produce a dummy photobook.

Limited to 20 participants per session
