"The project, born from the desire to explore the relationship between images and memory and the transitory nature of human existence, is a photographic census of the inhabitants who “resist” in the emptying small villages of my mountains and, at the same time, a personal and silent crossing of the landscape, an homage to mountains, a meditation on the slow social and cultural mutation of the territory."

“I see Cuba as a bocadito stuffed with hopes and propaganda, perfectly paired ingredients of a troubled history. In my journey I focused on four meaningful subjects each telling a specific story: Trinidad, Agujero Negro, Volveran and Habanachrome. To me each bite of Cuba has the unique taste of truth and lies melted together.”

Text (english and italian) by Emanuela Mirabelli, Maurizio Pratelli, Luca Galli
112 Pages,  24x28 cm
Offset Printing, Hardcover
First edition, 1000 copies

"In a green valley, amongst Lake Como’s forests and alpine pastures, the Carnival of Schignano is celebrated every year and sinks its roots in the past, when the men used to leave their homes and families for nine months a year. The parade, full of allegories and symbols, depicts the farewell of the men, who have to leave village one again towards their migrant destiny. A spontaneous festival, anarchical, without rules or written laws, that continues to live only thanks to the people’s spirit and to the artisans who cave the characteristic wooden masks."

Oliver Merce - The Anatomy of Decay

The Anatomy of Decay

edit, design: Cristian Bassa 
essays: Florin Șipoș

“Through the 111 black and white photos in “The Anatomy of Decay”, Oliver Merce is creating a visual documentation of a history swept under the rug, annihilated, together with its forgotten tragedies. The photos, taken during a 2 years, are picketing in a very discreet and inflexible manner the collective memory of “Crivina” and “New Town” neighborhood, both of them belonging Anina City. A time for living now unveils itself as a time for confession.” - Florin Șipoș

Next Book Case Study workshop coming up!

New Book Case Study Workshop for 2017 announced! Applications are due before January 15th. More info on admissions, dates and prices on the Book Case Study website.

We've tried to strike a balance between affordability and small numbers, resulting in four packed days of photobook thinking, making and critique. For this edition, the entire workshop program has been restructured, because we wanted to offer you a more in-depth, slow-paced, and personalized experience. 

We feel there is a need among photographers, who often work individually and in relative isolation, to receive substantial, content-oriented, honest feedback about their projects and approach. The total number of participants is therefore limited to eight candidates, with whom we will work individually and in group sessions.

Sign up and make good on your new year resolution to finally wrap up your publishing project!
