»Book, Concept, and Narrative«
Presented by Ahorn Studio
The workshop focuses on photography in book form, with an emphasis on concept and narrative, and a concentration on the basic steps involved in the initial process of making a book.
Christian Patterson will present his own work in an artist talk and provide generous, in-depth insights on his work- and book-making processes. He will also share guidelines, recommend best practices and identify the essential steps to successful photographic bookmaking. Most importantly, he will spend concentrated time working closely with workshop participants on their own projects.
This workshop will help you clarify your ideas, solidify the structure and narrative flow of your book, or, if you’re only at the beginning of your project, start thinking about how to adapt your photographs and material for a printed object.
