Book Case Study V - the workshop returns!

There are made and unmade books. Made books end up here on The Independent Photo Book Blog, but where to go with your unmade books? To the Book Case Study!

This year in it's 5th edition, our workshop in The Hague will pay special attention to the interaction between text and image - beyond the usual introduction essay or the photographer's project statement.

There's a new line up of workshop leaders this year, with Christopher Nüssli, Peter Zuiderwijk and Sara-Lena Maierhofer – and as an added bonus, a day of lectures with an artist talk by Cristina de Middel and a visit to the studio of master lithographer Marc Gijzen, who will demystify the process of making your digital files look good on paper.

Participants will also get free tickets to visit Unseen Amsterdam, courtesy of LhGWR, our fabulous hosts.

Taking as a starting point the flower engravings of Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer from Le livre de toute sortes de fleurs d’après nature (The Book of All Kind of Flowers after Nature), the still life compositions are broken up with images of Paris allowing the book to flow into a dream-like narrative of the city."

Series 1 is an experimental series of books produced in an edition of 100 that combine the work of two artists and photographers in a variety of different ways. Briney Breezes combines the black-and-white imagery of Charles Johnstone with the color work of Aaron McElroy. The pairing forms a natural but often elusive dialogue by contrasting Johnstone's topographical work with McElroy's often sexually charged interiors sexuality. It is a dialogue that works towards the creation of a new fictional space out of a place that was once real."

However, in the book underlies something I consider common in many people and many aspects of life: difficulties imposed by ourselves or by other people to access what we want. Despite having several opportunities to contact her, Holden self-sabotages his relationship. Jane Gallagher is everything we desire. Sometimes it's hidden in dark streets at night and other times it's waiting for us, seated at midday in any park. Elusive. Necessary. I'm still looking for my own Jane Gallagher."

"In Sunless, transgressive sexual encounters have been captured by the photographer on Ilfochrome film and interspersed with stark monochrome impressions of the urban architecture in which they are anchored. Consequently, Sunless pushes the limitations of offset printing to the limit by attempting to accurately reproduce Ilfochrome prints through the use of high pigmentation inks combined with silkscreen varnish, juxtaposed with large format matte-varnished duotone images. The images in Sunless, taken in Thailand between 2012 and 2013, form the second part of a larger body of work-in-progress, born out of a persistent urge to photographically confront questions regarding gender and sexuality."
