How To Make A Photography Book And Get It Published
This workflow demonstration will take you through the creation of a long- format body of work to a finished book, while outlining and exploring publishing options as a photo-book author. Corey will particularly emphasize the publishing aspect compared to self-publishing; for example, eBook vs. ink book, working with book agents, book packagers, designers and publicists.  Corey will illustrate what makes a successful book, what publishers are looking for, and how to successfully approach them.

Today in America, many of us are more familiar with our online world than our actual neighborhood. We spend endless hours on social media and interact with hundreds of people on virtual forums. We think of these as intimate relationships, but often they are separated by vast expanses of physical space. In The People in Your Neighborhood, MOWA celebrates the uniqueness of place with photographs from members of CoPA.

“I have been given the opportunity to travel, and I travel to photograph.  I believe that photography, in all of its varied spontaneous and meticulous forms, expresses an emotion, captures a moment in time and treasures a memory. It is the combination of art and science technology, capturing light to create an image.”

You are invited to the solo exhibit,  The New Global Women – Anchored in Tradition, Navigating the Future. This will be a return engagement for Milwaukee photographer Larry D’Attilio, whom you will remember from his last Tamarack exhibit: The Soul of Vietnam, last July of 2012. Larry has returned to Vietnam, continuing his exploration of the complex world of young women emerging from highly evolved yet rigid social/spiritual traditions into modern, sophisticated, cosmopolitan career women. Larry himself has evolved his own media traditions to express this complexity. Through Larry’s new abstractions, the struggles, fears, aspirations, and tensions of these women become palpable to us in ways far beyond what is possible with the simple portrait. These are very large prints, and utterly arresting in their impact.

The exhibition opens with a reception on Winter Gallery Night, Friday, January 17th from 5 – 9pm.
