INFOCUS Juried Exhibition of Self-Published Photobooks
From the earliest years of the medium’s history, photographers have embraced the book form as a way to present, organize and disseminate their work. The purpose of this second triennial Photobooks exhibition is to explore the range of ways that artists are using newly available commercial technologies in order to express themselves today. The exhibition represents the books chosen by judges Rebecca Senf, Mary Virginia Swanson, Darius Himes, Larissa Leclair, Christian Waguespack and Philip Zimmermann.
These books hail from all over the United States (including four local examples from Arizona), and 12 countries on five continents, including Australia, Russia, Chile, Norway, The Netherlands, England, Germany, France, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, and Italy.
Selected books showcase a wide range of printing technologies, including offset lithography, digital inkjet printing, letterpress, laser printing, and photocopying.
