It’s time to start preparing for the third year of the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Photobook Fair, at the Piedmont Park Community Center on Sat., Oct. 22nd, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. ACP is one of the first organizations to hold a photobook fair featuring self-published photobooks. This event offers photographers an opportunity to show (and sell) their self-published books, and offers the public an opportunity to see (and purchase) these rare, limited-edition objects.
Larissa Leclair from the Indie Photobook Library will be in attendance, and she’ll be bringing a collection of work from the library. (She’ll also be looking to add a few titles to the collection!) Fall Line Press, a new photobook publishing company right here in Atlanta will have a presence at the fair, as will photobook designer Laurie Shock, of Shock Design.
Photography books are experiencing a renaissance – and the fastest growing segment of photography books are those that are self-published. With an ever growing selection of ways to publish your own book, photographers are now able to realize projects that are meant to be seen in sequence, or that translate best in book form. The only downside is that there aren’t many avenues for getting your books seen outside of your circle of friends.
Do not miss this rare opportunity to see these rare works of art!
