Not an exhibition, not a wall.
It’s an object, made to be read and creased.
It can lead to places, tell a story, convey visions and ideas,
it’s a vastly unexplored medium full of possibilities.
Its narrative of choice instead of being linear is full of holes.
Every copy is an original,
It binds images in a sequence,
it can play with text and typography,
it lies and seduce.
selecting from reality and giving it a new meaning.
Every photobook is a self-contained universe with its own set of rules.
This lecture by UK/IT based publisher Alex Bocchetto will explore the potential of the photobook medium through visual examples and the process of ideating and publishing your own work
