What advantages are offered by the photobook medium? In the digital age, is the photobook still relevant? How has the photobook changed over the past years? How do things work between the photographer and publisher, and is this collaboration strictly necessary? Are there disparities within international publications?
Within the framework of the digital Lumix Festival 2020, we will answer these questions with help from experts. We will examine why the bound presentation of photos on simple, white paper is no longer in keeping with the times and what possibilities can arise from playing with various materials and layouts within a book. With current examples of professional photographers and photography students from around the world, we will examine whether an international trend can be evinced, and how we can draw distinctions between them.
