Los Angeles: Bookmaking Masterclass with Michael Christopher Brown and Ramon Pez

Join us for a two-day masterclass on developing and publishing photo books

Magnum Photos is excited to announce a bookmaking masterclass in Los Angeles, taking place on Friday 24 & Saturday 25 February 2017.

The event is a two-day workshop exploring the process of developing and publishing photo books – starting from the very first stages of editing a project into a book from concept, design and printing – as well as looking at the ins and outs of self publishing versus working with an established publisher.

Led by Magnum photographer Michael Christopher Brown and renowned art director Ramon Pez, the workshop will include invaluable inspiration and practical advice for early and mid-career photographers – photographers that are thinking about transitioning their projects into book format or those that are seeking feedback on their work in general and are interested in learning more about the bookmaking process.

The first day will consist of inspirational lectures from both speakers, as they outline how they created Michael Christopher Brown’s award-winning book, Libyan Sugar, together. The second half of that day will see the group split in two for lengthy group critiques in which participants will be able to receive constructive advice on their projects. This will continue into the second day and the entire group will also have the opportunity to attend LA’s Art Book Fair together on the first evening.

The workshop is strictly limited to 20 participants, to create a social yet intensive atmosphere in which everyone will get to know each other and share experiences. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

The workshop will be held at the Los Angeles Center of Photography, 1515 Wilcox Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028.
