Have you ever wanted to hear about how small-press photobook publishing “really” works, or how a photobook is made? Join Andrew Fedynak of Zatara Press as we take a brief journey through a few of ZP’s art object photobooks, using them as a guide to deconstruct and demystify both the design and publishing process. We will also show how the “Artist’s Styled Photobook” utilizes intentional decisions for material choice, size, construction, image size/placement, and sequence, which impart important meanings that work in conjunction with the entire book as an object. While certainly not every step can be covered in depth during this on-line talk, we hope the audience will learn some basics surrounding ZP’s photobooks, while also discovering other pitfalls to avoid if they are interested in publishing.

Andrew Fedynak (Hartford Art School MFA) is a photographer, publisher, and educator located in Richmond, Virginia. His projects are often based around the practice of Zen, and he prefers the photo book as their final format. Fedynak created Zatara Press in 2014 to publish uniquely designed and collaboratively crafted “Artist’s Styled Photobooks” centered around the aesthetic design principles of Wabi Sabi. To Zatara Press, photobooks are poetic art objects as well as statements or narratives. These photobooks reside in many museum collections world-wide. Each year Fedynak continues to design photo books for Zatara Press and other publishers while also working on his own personal photographic projects.
