PhotoIreland Foundation has launched Critical Academy, which opens up a new space to learn, research and examine contemporary art practices around Photography and their contexts, as much as the arts management and cultural policy that affect them.
The first upcoming seminar is Photobook Publishing with Éanna de Fréine. This seminar is aimed at photographers who see the book as the final form of their projects, but want to retain more economic and creative control over the publishing process. Photographers interested in this seminar should also be interested in how to make professional books using the best materials and practices. The seminar is not intended for photographers looking to make one-off photobooks with services such as Blurb, or handmade books. It is ideal for photographers who want to create photobooks of their own work, while retaining full control over the process.
The purpose of this seminar is to inform and advise photographers on the best practices for self-publishing photobooks. The seminar is aimed at photographers who wish to have more economic and creative control over their publishing, and are looking for guidance on where to begin.
The seminar will be presented by Éanna de Fréine. Éanna is the founder of The Velvet Cell, an independent photobook publisher with a focus on urban photography, and IndiePhotobooks, an educational site dedicated to sharing knowhow, ideas and strategies about photobook publishing.
Dates: 4th and 5th November
Fee: €300 per person
Location: The Library Project, 4 Temple Bar Street, Dublin.
