Our Mission Statement
We are a publishing community formed by photographers who believe in creating high-quality books, empowering artistic and editorial decisions to ourselves.
A new model
Red Hook Editions is a new model: photographers will take on many responsibilities, from funding to advertising to distribution, but will crucially retain control and ownership.
Beyond DIY: New technology and social media have made it easier than ever before to bring personal projects to fruition. But what can never change is the emphasis on high standards of content and production. We will help join these goals together.
Meet us in Brooklyn!
The Red Hook Editions community will meet several times a year in Brooklyn, with advisers and experts in relevant fields, to intensively workshop labors of love into finished form between the covers of beautiful books.
Photobook Publishers Network (PPN)
Photobook Publishers Network (PPN) brings together independent publishers of photo books with the goal of supporting documentary photographers and publishers of humanitarian photography.
Photobook Publishers Network works with publishers to address challenges and foster cooperation in the promotion and distribution of independently produced photo books.
BazanPhotos Publishing was created in 2006 by photograher Ernesto Bazan and many of his students and friends. The initial purpose was to self-publish the photographer’s Cuban trilogy. Bazan Cuba, Al Campo and Isla. Since 2015,BPP has began self-publishing the work by some of the very talented photographers who have studied under his guidance. With Animals by Willard Pate was self-published in 2015 and Hometown by Barbara Peacock was just released in 2016.
FotoEvidence was founded to support documentary photographers whose work focuses on social justice and human rights.
Each year the FotoEvidence Book Award recognizes one photographer with the publication of their project in a hard copy book, as part of a series of FotoEvidence books dedicated to social justice.
