LONG TERM PROGRAM – THE PHOTOBOOK AT PENUMBRA FOUNDATION
The intensive program is designed to guide artists through every step of the process of making a book. The objective is to have a physical maquette or artist book ready to present to publishers or to self-publish upon completion of the course, as well as to establish a practice and community to support them going forward. Deadline to apply: October 6th, 2023.
The program combines online seminars, critiques with guest artists, and one-on-one sessions, as well as optional in-person and online workshops. Working with several instructors throughout the program, while also receiving assignments and feedback from guest critics, participants will have both continuity and variety of support. The learning process will be based on regular production of physical maquettes, which will lead participants to deepen their understanding of the book form and allow them to continue redefining it for themselves. Reading and writing assignments, as well as individualized exercises throughout the year will develop the skills and knowledge necessary for a photobook maker.
The program starts January 13th, 2024, and ends on December 20th 2024.
