Photographers and artists have more options than ever before for presenting their work as a book. Meanwhile, the notion of the photo book itself is changing, no longer bound by the limitations of the traditional monograph.

Join Stephen Perloff of The Photo Review and Theo Anderson of Wilbur Editions as they discuss the Photo or Artist Book as a tangible item in the digital age that allows a photographer or artist to curate an experience for the reader and viewer, as well as convey a powerful message. They will also discuss collaboration between artists and photographers, as well as the books that have influenced them and their work.

Theo Anderson graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor of Arts in political science and discovered photography while attending graduate school at Lehigh University. Self-taught, his work is represented in private and public collections including the Museum of Fine Art Houston, Lehigh University and the Allentown Art Museum. Anderson has published more than 20 books including GUN CRIMES (2012), LAST DATE (2014), CONCRETE (2014), IOWA (2016) and ULISSE (2016). He has had over 15 solo exhibitions including at ArtsQuest’s Banana Factory (2011), Lehigh University (2014) and the Allentown Art Museum (2014). In 2011, Anderson created Wilbureditions, a micro publisher of artist books and special editions. He resides in eastern Pennsylvania and works on projects for himself and select clients.

Stephen Perloff is the founder and editor of The Photo Review, a critical journal of international scope publishing since 1976, and editor of The Photograph Collector, the leading source of information on the photography art market. His photographs have appeared in numerous exhibitions and reside in many museums and private collections. His work was recently included in the exhibitions "An Evolving Legacy: Twenty Years of Collecting at the Michener Art Museum" at the James A. Michener Art Museum; "Streets of Philadelphia: Photography 1970–1985" at The Print Center, Philadelphia; and "The Silver Garden" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Stephen has curated more than a score of exhibitions, including "Camera Work: A Centennial Celebration" and "Radical Vision: The Revolution in American Photography, 1945–1980" both at the James A. Michener Art Museum; and an exhibition of environmentally concerned photographs, "Paradise Paved," for the Painted Bride Art Center. He was also the curator for the latest Woodmere Art Museum Photography Triennial, as well as "Unseen Color, Part I," at the Light Room Gallery, Philadelphia.
