The Editing Challenge was the most popular online format in 2020. Now it returns at regular intervals. Photo book expert Wolfgang Zurborn competes against Nico Baumgarten to make a book dummy out of Ruth Stoltenberg's image material. In the Zoom Talk, the experts present their approach and discuss their results with the viewers. Finally, Ruth Stoltenberg evaluates the book dummies. If you've always wanted to look over the shoulder of experts editing photo books, you'll get an insight into the art of the photo book here. The conversation is in German, but you can watch the recording on YouTube with subtitles.
Nico Baumgarten is a German freelance photographer and bookbinder who self-publishes photo books. He studied photography at IDEP in Barcelona and bookbinding at CFP Bauer in Milan.
