"What E-books Can Do For Photobooks"

Driven by increasingly accessible self-publishing technology and a new cultural focus on auteurship, more photobooks are being published today than ever before. Outside photography, we have seen an explosion in books of another kind: e-books. Driven by the mass-adoption of mobile devices and the creation of file formats that work across those devices, the ongoing success of e-book publishing hinges on making books both mobile and flexible. This sometimes means rethinking what a photobook is. In this talk, we'll look at the industry dominant e-book formats, and what they can and cannot do, today and into the future, for photography.

Greg Albers is the founder and publisher of Hol Art Books, an independent press dedicated to great writing on visual art. He has spoken and led workshops on e-publishing for the Harry Ransom Center, Art Libraries Society, Museums and the Web, the Museum Computer Network, and the Internet Archive.
