His information is based on the different photo books that he has published with different publishing houses in the past and covers the main steps from the photo book idea, selecting and contacting publishers, to the writing and photo selection process.
Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: Martin’s pick:
Martin picked the photo book: “Harry Gruyaert” by Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert.
From the publisher’s description: “Born in Antwerp in 1941 and a member of Magnum Photos since 1982, Harry Gruyaert revolutionized creative and experimental uses of color in the 1970s and 1980s. Influenced by cinema and American photographers, his work defined new territory for color photography: an emotive, non-narrative, and boldly graphic way of perceiving the world…
…Gruyaert’s images are autonomous, often independent of any context or thematic logic. This volume, the first retrospective of his work, is a superb overview of his personal quest for freedom of expression and the liberation of the senses.”
The book is published by Thames & Hudson and has 144 pages
Marco also mentioned the three books, that Martin has recently published and talked about on the show:
Streetfotografie made in Germany:
357 pages in German, published by Rheinwerk Verlag
Next Level Streetfotografie:
256 pages in German, published by dpunkt Verlag
208 pages in English and German, published by teNeues Verlag
