LACP 2019 Photographic Book Competition – Announcing the Results


by Douglas Stockdale •

PhotoBook Journal is very excited to support the first Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) 2019 Photographic Book Competition. Recently Gerhard Clausing, Associate Editor, and myself, Editor and Publisher, had the honor to judge the book submissions, an interesting process in and of itself, as reported earlier by G. Clausing.

Over the next couple of months, we will be providing book reviews of the two category winners, Kevin Bubriski’s Mustang in Black and White, Commercially published photobook category and Alan Gignoux’s Oil Sands, Self-published category. We will be featuring a book review of a few of the other book submissions and as noted below, we already reviewed a couple of the juried books.

The jurors and LACP support teams were very impressed with the breadth, diversity and creativity of the artists/photographer’s books.

The opening of the exhibition of the juried in books will occur during LACP’s Exposure Weekend on the evening of Friday, September 13th, from 7pm to 8pm and the books will be on view all weekend at the Hotel MdR, Marina del Rey, California.

Subsequently the juried books will be on exhibition at the LACP gallery space in Hollywood, California, from September 16th to October 16, 2019. Afterwards the books donated to LACP will become part of their permanent collection and slated for the new LACP library being developed for 2020.
