The way of the Photobook
- BUILDING IT, WHY AND HOW -

7-DAY WORKSHOP WITH Akina Books
At Void

The Workshop

Every photobook is a self-contained universe with its own set of rules. A series of
photographs can be a starting point for the process of creating a book - editing,
sequencing, design and choice of materials are all opportunities to add new layers
of meaning to a body of work. During the genesis of a photobook, ambiguities and
clashes, unexpected juxtapositions and riddles will emerge, revealing the
pleasures and pains of visual language. Every single picture will gain a different
meaning when placed in a broader perspective of the book as a whole.

The aim of this Photobook 101 is to build a dummy, covering all the steps of the
process through knowledge, creativity and chance. Editing, sequencing, design,
binding and printing techniques as well as marketing and funding tips will be

disclosed through a hands-on approach and case studies. Techniques of non-
linear narrative, visual language and production will be explored as a way to

conceive the potential of a photographic project and re-imagine it in a new light.

We believe in the photobook as an object to crease, love and collect – a total that
is more than the sum of its parts.

A 6-day workshop with Antoine d’Agata

 

Antoine d’Agata

“Antoine D’Agata is a contentious character in the worlds of photography and art. (...) His work’s brutal and self-destructive content has a habit of upsetting people.” - Vice Magazine
“The work of french photographer Antoine D’Agata examines the fragile, often merciless, spaces between reality and its hegemonic interpretation. Drawn from his own physical immersion into global underworlds of prostitution, drug addiction, and violence, d’Agata’s intimately graphic retrievals are the product of new photo-documentary.” - Flaunt Magazine

“Photography is not a way to look at the world, but a way to live the world, to take position, to be of the world, in such a way that everything stands for something.” - Antoine d’Agata

Antoine d’Agata’s workshops are known to be a life changing experience. His intense practice has a catalytic impact in the understanding of one’s own work.

During the “Into the Void with Antoine d’Agata” workshop in Athens between 3 and 8 of March 2017, 15 participants from 10 different countries, were chosen to spend 6 days working closely with Antoine during the day and taking photographs by night.

Ekaterina Balaban (Russia), Dusana Baltic (Croatia), Magnus Cederlund (Sweden), Alexandre Charro (Brazil), Celine Croze (Morocco), Penny Demertzi (Greece), Hanna Lindgren (Sweden), Jens Lyk-Jensen (Denmark), Argyro Galani (Greece), Justin Ma (Australia), Madalin Marienut (Romania), Georgia Ponirakou (Greece), Danai Simou (Greece), Penelope Thomaidi (Greece), Laima Vainiņa (Latvia)

All of them developed a personal project under his guidance and pushed their photographic and personal limits, reaching a remarkable results.

During the workshop's last evening, a public exhibition of the resulting projects was held at Void together with a book signing of Antoine’s book “Cidade de Pedra” (Void. 2016), with an overwhelming attendance.
