Nowadays photography is no longer the exceptional event that permitted people to remember a face or a special moment of their lives. Images have become disposable and they are very seldom printed or improved, unless by professional photographers.
We will deal with different subjects, paying attention to the cropping of the images and the order in which to keep them. We do not want to keep our photos in a traditional album but to adapt a book structure that suits the images that will be in it: we will create a true FOTObook.
In these two week-end workshops, with two months in between, all sorts of images will be considered. You can experiment with various ideas of layout and make different kinds of FOTObooks to keep your photos.
There will be matching, cutting, collage and superimposition exercises and we will work both with black and white and colour.
We will also focus our attention to the problems which arise when photographing bindings, as we believe that images of books are often very poor and lacking in understanding.
