EDITING, SEQUENCING AND DESIGN OF A PHOTOBOOK
From 9th to 13th July 2017
This workshop will accept only 6 participants because during the 5 days of its duration each one will finish their photobook and this process will require intensive work with Calin Kruse.
The workshop focuses on the editing and sequencing of the authors' work to create a photobook, from the aspects of design, typography, materials, page layout and rhythm.
Different materials will be shown - such as papers, cover samples, as well as photobooks with great designs or authorial elements, and ideas.
Books where the collection of elements has not been well developed, such as cases with excellent images and poor design or editing ideas, will also be reviewed.
Calin Kruse will show his editorial projects and comment on the process.
Students will work under the close guidance of the teacher on their own projects, individually and in groups, with the intention of bringing different points of view to bear.
