Annenberg Space for Photography
Iris Nights Lecture Series: To Be Published or Self-Publish? Options for Artists Today

Ticket registration opens Wednesday, May 7 at 12:00 pm PDT and Thursday, May 8 at 9:30 am PDT HERE.

“The Iris Nights lecture series is a public program offered free of charge, by online reservation, on a first-come, first-served basis.”

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).
