Summary: Fragments is an accordion style book that will be published four times a year. Volume Two was printed and hand made by John Steck Jr. and Jimmey leblanc.

This book contains work from several different projects that Jimmey is working on. Our goal with this selection was to find a flow of images that don’t have a relationship together, but that create a dialogue with each other. We wanted to see the similarities of a photographers style, mood and stream of conscious from series to series, and how selections from each series could translate into its own different kind of story.

Date and place of birth of photographer/s: 1973, Hartford, CT

Pop-up Exhibition by Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive, organized by Indie Photobook Library

The Indie Photobook Library welcomes the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive to the United States! Come to the Foley Gallery for the second stop in the APPA’s roadtrip of pop-up exhibitions for the Camera Club of New York’s 5th Annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair. The APPA will exhibit contemporary self-published photobooks from the Asia-Pacific region. Browse almost 50 titles, socialize, be inspired, get creative!

Modeled after the Indie Photobook Library, founded by Larissa Leclair in 2010 and based in the DC area, the APPA is a unique collection of self-published, limited edition, and handmade photobooks and zines whose sole purpose is the promotion of photographic work/books from the Asia-Pacific region. The AP region has some of the most exciting and vibrant photographic work being produced currently – due to economic and, sometimes, political and social constraints, photobooks from most countries in the AP region are not able to be seen at fairs and festivals internationally, and do not get shortlisted for the top awards in the USA and Europe. The Archive redresses this balance by getting copies directly from the photographers themselves, from countries big and small in the Asia-Pacific region and then traveling to events and festivals worldwide to show and promote these books; these books are ones that would not be seen and experienced otherwise. In 2013 the Archive traveled to Tokyo, Cambodia, and Malaysia, and in 2014 with huge collection of books now in the Archive we are traveling to the USA to bring a selection of photobooks never before seen in North America.

The Archive has a permanent home in Melbourne, Australia, which is open to the public, researchers, artists, and institutions. The Archive also runs photobook talks, workshops, competitions, discussions, advisory sessions, and helps unknown Asia-Pacific photographers to get their work published. The Archive is directed by Daniel Boetker-Smith; Daniel is also the founder of Photobook Melbourne, an international photobook festival happening in February 2015 in Melbourne.

The CCNY Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and through the generous support of The Tierney Family Foundation.
