Summary: Four years, three deaths, sweaty armpits and a fetus is a fragmented tale in a book from the life of the Romanian family Fuliash, who I became acquainted with fourteen years ago. The quick succession of events – death, new life and a marriage, all happening in a short period of time – were the reason for me to make this project. The result is a story about the uncertainty and beauty of life, with my Romanian family in the lead. Specific for this project but also to my earlier work is the combination between realistic -and metaphorical fictional situations translated in photos, video (stills) and text.

Date and place of birth of photographer/s: 13/11/1981 Izegem, Belgium

Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive at Rayko in San Francisco

APPA in San Francisco
Hosted by Rayko
428 Third Street
San Francisco, CA

The Indie Photobook Library welcomes the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive to the United States! Come to Rayko for the first stop in the APPA’s roadtrip of pop-up exhibitions. 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.

For more information about these collections and to donate books, visit www.indiephotobooklibrary.org and www.photobookarchive.com.

 

The APPA will then travel to the 5th Annual New York Zine Fair hosted by Camera Club of New York and Foley Gallery, September 12-14, 2014 and the Leica Store in DC, September 20, 2014.
