Ink to iPad: The Photography Book Today
WHEN: Wednesday, November 9, 7 – 8:30pm
WHERE: SVA Theatre, 333 West 23 Street
**Free and open to the public**
>>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.
This event is part of the i3: Images, Ideas, Inspiration lecture series, which features presentations by cutting-edge digital photographers, hardware and software developers, and industry experts. Co-presented by the MPS Digital Photography Department, MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department and the Visual Arts Library.<<
