reMAKING A PHOTOBOOK: The 5 Obstructions

Penumbra Foundation, New York
January 29th – February 26th, 2018
Instructors: Jenia Fridlyand and guest Susan Lipper

This class is an opportunity for all photographers to broaden their practice and explore the photobook genre, but will be especially useful for those currently working on a photobook project. Inspired by Lars von Trier’s iconic film, the course will be structured around weekly assignments specifically designed to expand students’ understanding of their photography and the way it can function in book form. If approached with both serious commitment and wholehearted playfulness, the challenges posed will serve as creative springboards for the advancement of students’ work.
