The panel will take you on a journey through the intricate processes involved in bringing a photobook to the marketplace, from concept, to design and publication.

Elizabeth Clark Libert

Elizabeth Clark Libert creates photo-based projects that examine themes both autobiographical and psychoanalytical in nature.  Focused on subjects close to home, Libert develops a new kind of family album—one that reconsiders stages of life through a variety of visual and contextual approaches. The artwork is vulnerable, revealing introspective and extrospective observations of relationships and cultural influences from her immediate world.

Libert received a BA in Fine Art from Amherst College and an MFA in Photography, Video, and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally at museums, galleries, and non-profit institutions, and is in both private and public collections, including the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection and the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. Images from her MFA thesis project received the Photo District News Student Award in 2010 and the Magenta Foundation Emerging Artist Award in 2011. Print and online publications that have featured Libert’s work include T: The New York Times Style Magazine, The New Yorker Photo Booth, Mockingbird, and Lenscratch. Libert serves on the boards of the Griffin Museum of Photography and several local philanthropic committees in the Boston area, where she lives with her family.

Her first monograph, Boy Crazy, was published 2023 by Workshop Arts.

Rita Nannini – 

Rita Nannini is conceptual documentary photographer who lives in Brooklyn. Rita became a photographer well before she owned a camera. While studying in Madrid, she realized that words could not capture that which her eyes saw: this led to her study of photography and a career in documentary, portrait and performance photography. Originally drawn to the medium as a vehicle to capture otherness, her personal work focuses on the vernacular.

Rita’s documentary work has been exhibited and published widely in the United States and internationally.  Seeking A Better Life: Jewish Poultry Farmers in New Jersey, her extensive and revealing study, premiered at the New Jersey State Museum, Trenton, NJ and traveled over seven years to 14 locations.

Rita’s newest project First Stop Last Stop documents all the terminal stops of the New York City Subway system. She was awarded a New York City Artists Corp Grant in August, 2021 and recently released a photobook of the same name in April 2023. To view more, click here: FirstStopLastStop.com

She has exhibited at the Griffin Museum, the Los Angeles Center for Photography, Photoville, Princeton University, Beit Hatfutsot in Tel Aviv and Konica Minolta Plaza in Tokyo. Her work has appeared in many major international publications: The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer,The Center for Photography at Woodstock, Newsweek, L’Obs, Yomiuri Shimbun, Welt Am Sonntag and The Jerusalem Post.

Rita has also received grants for her photography from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  She is a Professional Member of the American Society of Media Photographers, New York Chapter.

David Bernstein –
