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.

This class is developed in collaboration with Image Threads Collective.

It is limited to 10 participants.
Registration on rolling basis until the class is full.
