The Photo Center is very excited to welcome artist, photographer, and publisher Richard Renaldi to Seattle. He will be visiting the Photo Center on October 16th to offer a workshop: From Portfolio to Print: Publishing your Photography Book, followed by an artist lecture open to the public.

Richard Renaldi brings a unique perspective to this workshop on photo book publishing: in 2006 Renaldi’s first monograph, Richard Renaldi: Figure and Ground, was published by the Aperture Foundation, and in 2008, Renaldi founded Charles Lane Press with partner Seth Boyd. Charles Lane Press publishes new work by contemporary photographers, offers limited edition prints, and takes as part of its mission a distinctive collaborative process between artist and publisher. As an artist working with a leading photography book publisher, and as an editor that has ushered into print significant books by emerging and established artists, Renaldi has a wealth of experience that he will share with other photographers and artists looking for insights as they explore publishing issues and options.

Richard Renaldi: Figure and Ground presents portraits and landscapes taken from coast to coast, across the United States with an 8×10 view camera. They form a collective portrait of a population and country going through a process of diversification that has already dramatically enlarged the notion of what defines Middle America. His second monograph, Fall River Boys, was released in March of 2009 by Charles Lane Press. Renaldi’s aim was to photograph the young men of Fall River coming of age amidst an industrial landscape well past its boom years. Solo exhibitions of Renaldi’s photographs have been mounted in galleries and museums throughout the United States, including solo exhibitions at the Gallery at Hermès and Yossi Milo Gallery in New York, and at Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta.
