Pop-up Exhibition of the Indie Photobook Library and Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive

Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 11-6pm
Talk by Larissa Leclair and Christine McFetridge 4:30-5:30pm

Hosted by Leica
977 F Street, NW
Washington, DC 20004
(202) 787-5900

The Indie Photobook Library welcomes the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive to the United States! Come join us in DC for the third stop in the APPA’s roadtrip of pop-up exhibitions. For the first time ever, the iPL and APPA will exhibit together contemporary self-published photobooks from around the world from both of their permanent collections. Browse almost 100 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 Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive (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. www.photobookarchive.com.
