Photobook publishing workshops with artists-photographers wishing to develop their photographic work into photobook projects, workshops and pop-up  based at Lisbon Photo Archives vacant shop in Rua da Palma, in partnership with The New Suspects/ Lisbon Photobook Fair  and the V&A Academy

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- the codex, the double spread, the textual and paratextual elements (index, colophon, table of contents, etc) – act conjointly to support an expanded notion of photographic art where humour, the everyday and the archive can be read. During this three-day intensive workshop we have the opportunity to engage with notions of photobook publishing as an 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.
