Impromptu is a workshop conducted by Void.
Working with photographers who have a complete body of work and would like to present it in the form of a publication (zine or book), Void edits, creates and produces together with the artists a unique object for each one. As the name implies... real-time. No tricks, no cards on the sleeve, no formulas.
