Photobook Masterclass at Arles Festival. Application Deadline: June 20th, 2012

Not cheap, but probably very helpful:

Photobook Masterclass by Lichtblick School & Schaden.com in the framework of the International Photography Festival in Arles.

One of many workshops, events and courses on the Photobook, which have popped up lately…. such as the two photobook courses in Madrid (one by the IED, featuring Martin Parr and others, one by Blank Paper, with a more local focus), PhotoIreland’s Book and Magazine Fair, Paris Offprint, etc. etc. etc.

This new interest is, of course, a bit too good to be true, in the long run. Yes, it is a hype, especially when you see the collectors’ side, which is the only point where I go d’accord with Christoph Schaden’s recent article in FOTONEWS. On the other hand, it shows a new passion for the object and the materiality of photography (as will be the theme of a conference organized by the European Society for the History of Photography this coming November), as well as a democratization of the medium.

Anyways, enough talk… here comes the information on the workshop in Arles, which is co-organized by Christoph’s brother, Markus, and the heavy-weight-duo Wolfgang Zuborn/Tina Schelhorn, together with two up-and-coming photographers…..
