Book and Editing Workshop with Ahorn Books

Ahorn Books

30th – 31st of October 2021
BEAST @ Østermarie, Bornholm, Denmark

The workshop will consist of two full days of discussions and an exchange of ideas on photobook making and editing, with particular attention to the relationship between images and text.

If you’re working on a book and need some direct feedback on a specific project, Ahorn Books will be holding an in-person workshop on editing and understanding the possible narrative paths of the book. The workshop will be hosted by BEAST, a program organized and curated by the art photographer Anne Lass in collaboration with botanist and artist Armin Mangold. The workshop will consist of two full days in the village of Østermarie on the Danish island of Bornholm.

BEAST @ Østermarie, Bornholm, Denmark

30 September 2021

Schedule and Program

On Saturday 30th, the workshop will start with an introductory meeting and the participants’ and fellows’ presentations. To get familiar with the methods, the rest of the day will be dedicated to some exercises related to the understanding of different narrative structures in the construction of a photobook and the specific relationship between images and text. On Sunday 31th, Daniel Augschöll and Anya Jasbar will work closely with the participants, analyzing their work, researching together possible paths to their projects, both with individual sessions and group critics.


Each participant is encouraged to bring an edited selection of images (min. 25/30 images) from one body of work or recent projects. It would be great to see and work on this selection with small laser or inkjet prints. The participants can bring a larger digital selection of images on their computer or USB stick. The participants will receive a preparatory email before coming to the workshop with all the directions and information regarding the materials.
