VENUE: The 1961 Coworking & Art Space

ADDRESS: 211 Osaphear Street, Upper West River Side, Siem Reap, Cambodia

The workshop will be co-ordinated by Ying Ang, Sean Lee and Bella Capezio, and is limited to 12 participants on a first-come first served basis.

The workshop is free but we are asking for donations of US$10-50 from participants to cover some of the costs – if you can’t pay you don’t have to.

Please email info@photobookarchive.com ASAP to book your spot.


The 2014 Angkor Festival-Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive Workshop is designed for photographers who are interested in developing a concept, edit and sequence for a book. Ideally for projects that are close to completion or at least well advanced. All the photographers will be expected to participate in pushing each other creatively and conceptually in discussing ways to problem solve the medium shift between singular images to the book as an object in the current environment of photography.

The first part of the workshop will feature an intimate look at several publications, followed by a discussion on what makes them successful and the process involved in making them possible. There will then be an advanced critique led by Ying Ang and Sean Lee, who are both launching their first major monographs at the Angkor Photo Festival on December 1.

Please Bring the Following:

A series of prints A5 or A4 – 50+ prints is suggested, they can be printed on low quality paper.

A short written statement about the work

Work only on screen will not be suitable for this workshop – as sequencing, flow and narrative are the focus participants MUST bring prints.

The workshop will end with a roundtable discussion on self-publishing vs. outsourced publishing, and how to get things done.
