A Guide to Image Editing and Presentation for Photographers and Visual Artists

This book introduces photographers, print-makers, and other graphic artists to the creative possibilities of image editing and presentation. The focus is on how meaning can be created and shaped if the emphasis is placed on the totality of the visual experience rather than by looking at each single image in isolation. In the first instance, there is a discussion of a variety of ways images can be grouped together. This act has implications for how the work should subsequently be presented.

Overview

This book introduces photographers, print-makers, and other graphic artists to the creative possibilities of image editing and presentation. The focus is on how meaning can be created and shaped if the emphasis is placed on the totality of the visual experience rather than by looking at each single image in isolation. In the first instance, there is a discussion of a variety of ways images can be grouped together. This act has implications for how the work should subsequently be presented. To this end there is a discussion of various presentation techniques, and how each different forum can further amplify the desired effect. Finally there is a hands-on look at a variety of presentation techniques such as artist book publishing, exhibition design and portfolio construction that will help the reader to present his or her work in a professional manner. By employing the principles outlined in this book readers can expect that the content of their work will be more coherent and accessible, not only to an audience, but also more importantly to themselves. Douglas Holleley PhD is the author of the critically acclaimed Digital Book Design and Publishing, a widely used text on the subject of self-publishing. His books and artworks are in many public collections in Australia, Canada, Europe and the United States, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. PHOTO DEVELOPING is a series of books addressing conceptual and practical issues related to current photographic practice. This is Volume 1.
