Photo Books a key final piece for your A2 Portfolio Slide 2 Objective: Understanding photo-book design Workbook: Produce a number of slides that show evidence of the following: 1.Research a photo-book and describe what story/narrative the book is telling; its subject-matter, style, approach etc. 2.Who is the photographer? Investigate background, conception and context of why he/she made the book and the photographs within it. E.g Robert Franks The Americans was conceived with the help of a scholarship that allowed Frank to go on road trips across America during a two year period. He wanted to portray American society in the post-war period and his book has influenced (and still influence) many photographers since and also contributed to a new style and subjective approach to documentary photography. Why? 3.Deconstruct the layout of the book e.g. think about format (portraiture/ landscape/ square), size (A5, A4, A3), sequencing (single page, double-spread, multiple images on a page), juxtaposition of photographs on opposing pages etc. Describe also, how the book title, text (foreword, essay, statement by artists) and captions (if any) are use. 4.Select 1 key picture from your chosen book and analyse it in detail following the method of form, meaning, judgement, context (see slide 10) Week 10: 11 Nov 15 Nov Slide 3 Sections to complete Week 10: 11 Nov 15 Nov Slides to improve: Actions to takeComplete by: Research a photo-book and describe what story/narrative the book is telling.

AO2 Experiment with and select appropriate resources, media, materials, techniques and processes, reviewing and refining their ideas as their work develops. AO3 Record in visual and/or other forms ideas, observations and insights relevant to their intentions, demonstrating an ability to reflect on their work and progress. AO4 Present a personal, informed and meaningful response demonstrating critical understanding, realising intentions and, where appropriate, making connections between visual, oral or other elements.

Make sure you have adjusted and standardised all the pictures in terms of exposure, colour balance, contrast, brightness and produced a duplicate a set in monochrome (B&W.) 2.Put contact sheets and edited prints in your workbook and evaluate. 3.Go to website www.blurb.com or www.mymeory.co.uk and choose a layout template and begin to design a layout for an online photo-book.www.blurb.com www.mymeory.co.uk 4.The photo-book must have a title and a text (introduction) that provide context for the pictures. 5.You may want to divide book into chapters that represent different assignments, subject-matter and styles. Produce screen prints of layout ideas as you progress and add to Powerpoint for further annotation. 6.Evaluate your final book layout, and explain in some detail how well you realised your intentions and reflect on what you have learned.
