Conversations is a series of talks—online and onsite—between artists, curators, gallerists, and arts professionals that brings an in-depth dimension to the key themes and ideas shaping photography today.
In this edition of Conversations, three of our exhibitors from the PRESENTS: The Photo Book exhibition take us behind the scenes of their experiences as artists, designers, and bookmakers. This talk features Kay Jun, design writer, lecturer, and publisher of Aprilsnow Press; Yongjoon Choi, artist and author of Location; and Minji Yi, artist and author of To Bury the Dog Properly. Both titles are included in Aprilsnow Press’ presentation.
The video chapters below outline what you can expect to see. If you would like to see the running dialogue, turn on closed captioning by clicking on the “CC” button at the lower-right corner of the video.
