Photography is not only about taking pictures. Through developing and editing, the photographs gain another life, through a photo book these images become a precious object you hold in your hand. Photographs, which are fragments of scenes, become one “story” via trimming, order and consideration. The workshop is hosted closely by a photographer Akihito Yoshida and a book designer Tamon Yahagi. With your own photographs, you will make one hand-made small photo book. Please make a reservation. First in first served basis.
