Since the turn of the millennium, the photobook has been experiencing an unbelievable rise in its relevance and has become ever-present in the art market, exhibition spaces and international fairs.

The European scene is a vibrant and progressive photobook space and Regina Maria Anzenberger, with her knowledge and experience as a photobook maker, gallerist and photobook store owner is well-placed to provide a valuable insight on the market and industry in Europe.

There are many things to consider if you are working on a project: How to finance a publication? Should the project be self-publishing? How do producers approach publishing houses? What are the appropriate marketing strategies? How does distribution function? How to connect your book with the European scene…

These are some of the questions that will be addressed through practical advice from Regina Maria Anzenberger in this workshop/discussion. The outcomes for participants are refined book ideas and insider knowledge of the European photobook market.
