Holiday due to Ascension and Pentecost Days? A good reason to travel to Germany between June 1st and 5th for this inspiring festival that is totally devoted to photobooks. For € 14 a day of € 28 for all days, you can buy a festivalticket (students get discount, and there are also VIP tickets for people that like to support the festival financially). And there is a great menu with things to choose from.
There will be lectures from Dirk Alverman, Mitch Epsrein, Stephen Gill, Sébastien Girard, Pieter Hugo, Kummer & Herrman, Alfonso Morales, Jo Ractliffe, Viviane Sassen and Bart Sorgedrager. And when you're done listening and need some action, you can buy yourself a workshop ticket. Or you can have your own photobook reviewed. You pay € 80 for this professional advice.
During the festival two lucky people will receive an award. There is a dummy award for the best unpublished photobook and the price is the production of the book. And of course there is an award for the best photobook of 2011. Enough reason to start planning a trip!
In this category you'll find products with (your own) photos on it. From basic prints to the craziest photo merchandise.
