How do individual pictures turn into a story? How does the story then become a book? LFI Workshop with Ernesto Bazan from April 28 until 30, 2017!
Ernesto Bazan has not only been teaching photographers how to edit photo books for the past 16 years, he has also founded his own publishing house: BazanPhotos Publishing. During the workshop he will share the finer details of editing with the participants, and show them what he considers makes a good photo book. Participants do not necessarily have to present their own book project – it is sufficient that they are interested in the making of books, and that they bring their portfolio to date and two of their favourite photo books. In addition to theoretical sharing and practical considerations during the portfolio reviews, the teacher will also invite participants to be involved in the editing of his new book.
“I place great emphasis on the construction of a poetic, unpredictable and coherent sequence in a way that is similar to how a composer writes a music score.”
Ernesto Bazan, born 1959 in Palermo, Italy, became a photographer thanks to a dream. He received his first camera when he was fourteen years old and began photographing daily life in his native city and in the rural areas of Sicily. Photography has been more than a profession to him, it is a mission in his life. Bazan studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and graduated with a BFA and a Major in photography. His work has been exhibited in Europe, Latin America and the US. In 2002, Bazan created his own photographic workshops providing a special emphasis on Latin America. In 2008, he founded his own publishing house, BazanPhotos Publishing. He has published several books, including his trilogy on Cuba.
