“Photography is a device that can help people grow”
Interviewed by 1854 Press ’s Zoe Harrison, photographer, writer, curator and publisher Bruno Ceschel discusses his multifaceted role as educator and facilitator in both publishing and academic circles. Investigating gender, sexuality, and race through their work, Ceschel founded Self Publish, Be Joyful , an organisation dedicated to shaping contemporary photography and visible culture through publishing, on the web and offline events, and schooling programmes.
“I am interested in the language of pictures, especially artists who work to challenge and renew its language– it is our role to help them” Ceshel explains. The photobook, in every its forms, is analysed in this interview, as Ceshel explores how and the reason why the medium still retains such importance.
