ACP 11 Portfolio Lecture by Michelle Dunn Marsh
Grady High School
Featuring work by: Michelle Dunn Marsh

: Sat, Oct 10, 5pm - 6pm

The publishing world has changed more in the last five years than in the previous five centuries; what does this mean to the segment that is photo book publishing? Michelle Dunn Marsh will discuss some of the joys and challenges in the process of making art books today, including insights on the investment publishers and museums make in each book, the importance in considering what makes a great book, not just a portfolio of photographs, the evolutionary stages from a few prints to a finished book and the years in between, the new opportunities in self-producing books, and most important, the eternal joy and critical importance of experiencing photography in book form. Examples from a variety of books will be shown, and questions are most welcome.

Michelle Dunn Marsh is an advocate for photography and design. Affiliated with the Aperture Foundation since 1996, she currently serves as co-publisher of Aperture magazine, and develops photo-based book projects for other institutions and private clients as an award-winning book designer and as editor-at-large for Chronicle Books.

She has worked in publishing for 15 years in a variety of capacities, and has lectured nationally on art book design and publishing. Key books include a recent survey of rock and roll photographs selected by Graham Nash, and monographs by Catherine Chalmers, Carrie Mae Weems, Jock Sturges, Paul Strand, and Lino Tagliapietra, among many others. She holds an MS in Publishing from Pace University, and is on the advisory board to the Palm Springs Photo Festival and the Board of Governors for Bard College, where she received her bachelor's degree.
