An exclusive session with Daylight Books cofounder Michael Itkoff.
Daylight Books a non-profit organization dedicated to publishing art and photography books. For over a decade, Daylight has been dedicated to publishing art and photography via its print and digital publishing programs. By exploring the documentary mode along with the more conceptual concerns of fine-art, Daylight’s uniquely collectible publications work to revitalize the relationship between art, photography, and the world-at-large.
Michael has been deeply involved in the publishing industry in both print and digital media and he has written for the NYTimes Lens blog, Art Asia Pacific, Nueva Luz, Conscientious blog and the Forward. Before starting Daylight, Michael interned at the Annie Leibovitz Studio and Aperture Foundation among others, and worked at Rizzoli International Publications. His monograph, ‘Street Portraits’, was published by Charta Editions in 2009. Michael received his BA from Sarah Lawrence College and his MFA from ICP/Bard College.
Daylight Books will have a boutique exhibition for the last week of the Festival - 17 - 22 June.
This event is supported by the US Embassy in New Zealand.
