This is a unique chance to meet, listen to and interact with two experts at the forefront of the photography self publishing photo-book phenomenon. Brunoc Ceschel founded Self Publish, Be Happy in 2010 with the aim of helping artists and photographers make and publish their own books and celebrating the form. Cristina du Middel is a photographer who self- published her first book, The Afronauts, in 2012. Through word-of-mouth, it has become a huge success, selling out its print run, making it onto most of the Best of 2012 photobook lists and and being shortlsted for the prestigious Deutsche Börse Prize 2012.
The one-day course, curated by Sean O’Hagan, will consist of two morning talks followed by an afternoon of interaction and a Q&A session.
To get the most out of the day, you will be somebody who has a series of work that you want to publish as a book. You may be a photographer or student who just want to get your work seen, or an artist who works with photographs who want to make an artistic book – like the Afronauts. You should have enough unified images to provide the material for a book in some form.
