This lecture will explore how artist books can incorporate and integrate mediums such as photography, xerography, screen printing, paper making and graphic design. The layering of these techniques defines the specific kind of storytelling ingrained in this bookmaking process.
Mario will explore a variety of techniques and examples will be presented with production and processing details. Furthermore, the work of various artists and artists groups in this field will be described, with particular attention to the Italian tradition.
Mario Santoro-Woith (born 1968 in Cuba) is an Italian photographer working in the field of experimental photography and xerography printmaking. Combining these techniques, Mario has self-published several limited- edition artist's books. His work has been exhibited internationally and his books are held in numerous private and public collections including the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, The Museum Folkwang in Essen (Germany), The Fleet Library at RISD in Providence, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Mario is based in Todi (Umbria).
Together with William A. Ewing and Todd Brandow, Mario is one of the founders the Todi Circle, a photography think tank held every year in Todi (Umbria) during the month of June.
