Fotoboek! is an afternoon of information, exchange opportunities and fun, aimed at photographers, designers, booksellers and of course anyone else interested in photography. There’s a packed programme: from speed dates for photographers with photo book experts, to film shows, workshops, a lecture and a talk show about a hot item related to photography. The main attraction at Fotoboek! is the huge photo book market in the Banking Hall.
The specialist book sellers at this year’s edition include Ivo van der Bent Publicaties, Eriskay Connection, Het FotoAtelier and Jan Vandemoortele Photobooks. Novice photographers can speed date with Annette Behrens, the photographer who has won awards in Arles and has plenty to say about the theme of the talk show: ‘Stepping into another country’. Guests including Johan Nieuwenhuize, Shinji Otani and Alice Wielinga will talk about earning their spurs abroad, and the opportunities and dangers of European funding.
