The Fine Art Photo Book – Quinton Gordon – Online – September 18th – October 30th, 2021
Learn how to translate your photo project into a finished book!
Designed for photographers who are working on a larger personal project or photo-essay this eight-week online workshop will help you to understand how to edit, sequence and produce your project in book form.
From zine, to handmade books and the creation of a maquette this program will touch on the option and advantages of each form. Quinton will lead participants through the process of completing your projects, editing and sequencing the photographs and designing a book that can be either a finished, self-published book, or a working book dummy used to approach publishers.
Participants should have a project in the works that may be nearing completion but where they still have access to making some additional images.

Quinton Gordon (b. 1967) is a Canadian artist and photographer whose work deals with our relationship to culture, landscape and notions of identity and belonging. His work has been published widely and his photographs reside in both private and public collections internationally. He has been an instructor with the Leica Akademie USA since 2011.
In 2012 he published his first artist book, Mile Zero: A Place Uncertain, followed by DUSK, a portfolio of images made on the edge of light as day becomes night using orthochromatic paper negatives and a large format camera. Currently he is working to release two new books, EDGE: The Salish Sea, and Nowhere Is A Place, both due to publish later this year with Turn Signal Books.
Outside of his professional practice, Quinton is an active public speaker, workshop instructor and mentor. He also holds a position as the Manager of Strategic Engagement with the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria, producing photo-documentary and film projects that serve to expand the dialogue around multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion in the context of an evolving Canadian identity.
