Preview Fotoboek and Fotoboek! – two golden opportunities for photographers looking for advice!
Are you planning to compile a photo book, have you got one in the pipeline or is your book already on the shelves and you’d appreciate input from other people in the same position? If so, don’t miss these two programmes being put on at Het Nutshuis! On Sunday 19 February, Het Nutshuis is organizing the fifth edition of Fotoboek!, the annual event for photographers and fans of photography featuring a huge photo book market, workshops, a lecture, film show, talk show and speed dates. The speed dates have become so popular that an afternoon has been organised before the great event in February, at which photographers can present their plans in an informal setting: Preview Fotoboek on Saturday 14 January.
14 January: pitch your plan and get feedback from specialists including Jos Morree
Preview Fotoboek on Saturday 14 January is a chance for four photographers to present their projects. The presentations will take the form of a pitch: short and to-the-point, obviously with lots of pictures. Photo book producer Jos Morree is one of the professionals who will be giving advice from the front row. Before the pitches, Jos will talk about his work printing photo books and supervising national and international, up-and-coming photographers like Marie-José Jongerius and Chrystel Lebas. The afternoon provides an interesting peek behind the scenes, even for non-photographers!
19 February: speed dates with experts including Sybren Kuiper and Annette Behrens
Any photographer planning to compile a photobook, whether still in the early stages or almost finished, can sign up for one of the most popular activities at Fotoboek! on Sunday 19 February: four short speed dates with a range of experts. Bring your portfolio and discuss your plans with experts including designer Sybren Kuiper, photographer Annette Behrens and copywriter Raymond Frenken.
Has your photo book already been published? If so, sign up for the book market!
Have you published a photo book at your own expense, and are you now watching while your stock gradually gathers dust under your bed? Is so, bring a pile to Het Nutshuis and we’ll do all we can to sell them on your behalf at the Fotoboek! book market. Tell all your fellow photographers to bring theirs too, then we can set up a packed stand on Sunday 19 February.
If you’re interested in pitching your project at Preview Fotoboek on 14 January, taking part in the speed dates during Fotoboek! itself on 19 February or bringing your own photo book to the book market, sign up by sending an e-mail to Mirjam Zweers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state clearly which activity you are signing up for.
