What is a photobook? This course looks at the photobook as an object/exhibition in and of itself. We will consider subject matter, presentation and visual concept. As a class we will look at successful photobooks (historical and contemporary), discuss self-publishing vs. working with a publisher, and the difference between trade vs. artist book. Guest lecturers may include publishers, artists who have published photobooks, and others involved in the dissemination of them. NOTE: Students must have a project they are ready to make into a maquette and access to a laptop and printer (photo printer a plus). A basic understanding of Adobe InDesign is recommended.
