Lecture by Mary Virginia Swanson: To Be Published or Self-Publish? Options for Artists Today
Q&A and book signing hosted by photo-eye will follow the lecture.
Free and open to the public.
The publishing industry is undergoing extraordinary changes. The print-on-demand revolution has opened up new possibilities, and it has never been easier or more affordable to produce a book of your photographs. The traditional publishing path has the advantage of a highly specialized team who brings their expertise in design, production, marketing and distribution systems. With self-publishing, you can create exactly the book you envision, but without the support of professionals at a publishing house. In the changing landscape of the photo book industry which publishing scenario is right for you at this time in your career?
In this presentation, Mary Virginia Swanson will discuss both avenues to publishing, and help participants determine the pros/cons for their unique needs. Swanson will share resources from Publish Your Photography Book, a respected title she coauthored with Darius Himes, which has recently been updated and expanded (Princeton Architectural Press, Spring 2014).

“Stephen Marc will discuss his use of archival documents and images as well as extensive research in his creative process. Marc constructs compelling layered narratives made up of his panoramic photographs of historical landscapes interwoven with found remnants of the past—racially charged caricatures and cartoons, trade cards, illustrations and slave documents. The results are challenging, visually charged images of the places and remnants of the African Diaspora. In his artist statement, Marc writes, “My work is an interpretive relocation of, and commentary on, the limited representations and accounts of the black experience, into the early years of the 20th century, that were usually defined from outside the community. My intent is to allow the haunting of the past to symbolically resurface providing a layered contextualization of what was…”
Marc is one of two highly established artists invited to anchor the current exhibition, Unpacking the Archives: Frameworks for Change—Activate Now!, co-curated by Dennie Eagleson, former creative director of the Herndon Gallery, and Raewyn Martyn, visiting professor of visual arts at Antioch College.”

“The Howard Chapnick Grant was introduced in 1996 to encourage and support leadership in fields ancillary to photojournalism, such as editing research, education and management. The Grant was established to honor the memory of Howard Chapnick, and acknowledge the value of his enormous contribution to photography.
The annual $5,000 grant may be used to finance any of a range of qualified undertakings, which might include a program of further education, research, a special long-term sabbatical project, or an internship to work with a noteworthy group or individual. According to the Fund’s Board of Trustees, special consideration will be given to projects that promote social change and/or serve significant concerns of photojournalism. The grant is not intended to be used for the production of photographs, which will continue to be funded by the main grant of the Smith Fund.
Recipients of the Howard Chapnick Grant will be selected by the Board of Trustees of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund in Humanistic Photography.
To apply or nominate someone fill out the Online Form.”

“[Edward] Hopper was a master at using light to expressively illuminate his subject. I also like the fact that almost all of his human subjects are contemplative. There is, for the most part, no action. This sense of quietude contributes to the open-ended quality of the narratives, and leaves room for significant emotional depth. This seems a lot like real life, and what I would like to carry over in my work.” — Richard Tuschman
The exhibition will be on view June 6 – July 19, 2014.
