You will need to check back into the LACP website as more details are in the process of being added about the Workshops (one I do know of is Elizabeth Avedon’s one-day book design workshop) and Seminars.
Yours truly, along with Gerhard Clausing, the Associate Editor of PhotoBook Journal, will be the two jurors for the Photobook Competition, which we are developing right now with more details to come. Planned so far is that the juried books will be on display during the 2019 Exposures event and subsequently exhibited at the LACP gallery in Los Angeles for the month of September.
Just the facts; the photo above of me during a previous portfolio review is not my idea of an ideal portrait nor one of my favorites; mouth hanging open, caught mid-sentence while discussing a body of work. Nevertheless pretty realistic of a working session. sigh.
