Review: Virtual Signing Session with Stephan Vanfleteren
Saturday 18 April 1PM-3PM
On Saturday 18 April, photographer Stephan Vanfleteren was the first to host a MENDO Virtual Signing Session from his studio in Belgium. We offered people a one-on-one video call with the master photographer. Many people responded, and got a unique opportunity to have their book signed while they chatted. The scheduled 1PM-3PM Signing Session ended up being a chat marathon that lasted until 6PM.
We’re very grateful for all the effort and time that Stephan Vanfleteren & his team have put into this inaugural Virtual Signing Session, and we also want to thank all of you for joining us.
We will be announcing new Virtual Signing Sessions soon, so keep posted by joining our newsletter or following us on Instagram.

Much has been said about the surreal times we’re facing today. That doesn’t mean we don’t have a craving for visual inspiration. For that reason MENDO introduces The Virtual Signing Sessions, where photographers sign their books for you personally during a one-on-one book signing session via video call. We kick off with none other than Belgian master photographer Stephan Vanfleteren and his book Present.
