We all love those large-format coffee table photo books, and with recent developments in technology, making your own custom edition is just a (few) clicks away. Our friends at SVA are hosting a panel discussion on the role of photography books and what this means to you.
Ink to iPad: The Photography Book Today
November 9th 7:00-8:30 PM
SVA Theater • 333 West 23rd St, New York City
Free & Open to the Public
Here's a description of the event. HINT: Read the very last sentence at the bottom:
Until recently, the success of a professional photographer was often measured by the publication of a photographic monograph, which has typically been inaccessible to all but the most profitable or sought-after artists. Today, using on-demand printing and web distribution, photographers are exploring alternatives such as self-publishing and crowd-sourcing to design, produce, and distribute their own books.
- As digital technology has revolutionized photography, is the printed page still relevant?
- How can emerging photographers successfully produce and distribute their work?
- What is the role of the e-book in relation to the art book?
These questions are addressed by a distinguished group of photographers and publishers in a panel discussion moderated by Michael Itkoff, editor of Daylight magazine. Panelists include curator Susan Bright; Eric Himmel, editor-in-chief, Abrams Books; David Schoerner, founder and publisher, Hassla Books; and photographer Harvey Stein.
There will be a reception immediately following the discussion, hosted by Moab Paper.
