This presentation provides an overview of the contemporary photobook self-publishing scene, discusses the relevance of photobooks and self-publishing in the post internet era, and looks into Hegert's own self-publishing practice as a member of Everything Is Collective and publisher at EIC Press. He will provide examples and resources for those wishing to pursue self-publishing, as well as those wanting to integrate it into their pedagogy. Books are affordable to make, affordable to buy, and offer a welcoming and participation based community. As an active member of this community, Hegert will share unique insights into his own practice in self-publishing, as well as his experience teaching a class about self-publishing at Texas Tech University.
