Be sure to stop by and check out the Indie Photobook Library exhibition.
As photographers step outside of the traditional publishing platform to self-publish, many come to together to work on both the creation and publication of their photographic work in book form. This selection of photobooks from the permanent collection of the iPL showcases the diverse and exciting outcomes of these collaborations.
(Book list TBD About 50 titles to be included.)
About the Indie Photobook Library:
Founded by Larissa Leclair in 2010, the Indie Photobook Library is an archive of self-published and indie published photobooks. This includes DIY, photobooks independently published and distributed, photography exhibition catalogs, print-on-demand photobooks, artist books, zines, photobooks printed on newsprint, limited edition photobooks, and non-English language photography books, etc. The iPL promotes and showcases the books in the collection through international pop-up and feature-length exhibitions, articles, conferences, guest lectures, and also preserves them as a non-circulating public library. Having a specific collection dedicated to this contemporary movement in publishing allows for the development of future discourse on trends in self-publishing, the ability to reflect on and compare books in the collection, and for scholarly research to be conducted years, decades, and centuries to come.
