Page-turner: Photography, the Book and Self-Publishing
4-day photobook publishing workshop and pop-up exhibition with artists and photographers to develop their photographic work into photobook projects
in partnership with The New Suspects/ Lisbon Photobook Fair / Lisbon Photography Archives.

The workshop and exhibition project PAGE TURNER: photography, the book and self-publishing presents a provocation to the generally held assumption of the centrality of the photographic series and sequencing in the photobook. Challenging this perspective that has become the canon of photobook thinking, the workshops propose to look instead at what surrounds the photographs, starting with the book form, whose traditionally recognisable features- codex,  double spread,  textual and paratextual elements (index, colophon, table of contents, etc) – act conjointly to support an expanded notion of photographic art where humour, everyday and the archive can be read.
During the 4 days intensive workshop we have the opportunity to engage with photobook publishing as artistic practice, and particularly with the intersection between photography and the book.
The workshop has a double objective:
1) to map the conceptual framework of photobook works for those developing academic projects and/ or writing critically on the topic;
2) to support the practice of a photobook project, for those already working in a photobook or intending to develop one from an existing photographic collection.
