Summer is coming to a close, schools are getting into high gear and Fall is quickly approaching!
As you may have noticed, I took most of the summer off from posting photobook reviews, not that I was avoiding photobooks per se, but more about a concentration on another of my personal projects (working title: Memory Pods) investigating memory and its preservation. Interesting for me is that I initiated this particular project without a clear pre-visualization as to what a resulting photobook might look like and even if there will be one. The subject drew me in and I just followed. nice.
Okay, back to the subject in hand; on the East coast (Right Coast) of the States in September are three photobook events. Two of which, CCNY and VSW (Visual Studies Workshop), occur on the same date but different sides of the state of New York, while the NY Art Book Fair is much broader book fair than just photobooks.
September 13 & 14 (12 – 6pm), opening reception Friday, September 12 6-8pm EST: The Fifth Annual CCNY Zine & Self-Published Photo Book Fair at the Foley Gallery, 97 Allen St. Lower East Side, NYC, NY.
September 13th, 12 – 7pm (FREE) VSW Second annual Pub Fair, VSW Auditorium, 31 Prince Street Rochester, New York
September 25th – 28th, Printed Mater’s NY Art Book Fair, MoMA PS1, NYC, NY
Lots and lots of photobooks and zines to enjoy. Personally I will be on the Left Coast patiently waiting for the LA Art Book Fair in the Spring 2015.
