Master Critique is a unique online opportunity to work with photographer and book artist Ricardo Bloch who lives in Paris. For Ricardo, books can provide all makers an exploration of image, text, and materials. He sees artists' books as a medium that allows for pushing boundaries and expanding the definition of what a book is–whether it be graphic or conceptual, handmade or printed, narrative or stream -of consciousness, photocopied or collaged, political or autobiographical, analog or digital.
