The Indie Photobook Library’s 3rd feature-length exhibition curated by Darius Himes (Assistant Director, Fraenkel Gallery and Co-Founder, Radius Books) and Larissa Leclair (Founder, Indie Photobook Library) will travel from Gallery Carte Blanche in San Francisco to FotoWeekDC. The exhibition titled “A Survey of Documentary Styles in early 21st century Photobooks” draws from the Indie Photobook Library collection and features 70 photobooks along with a selection of photographs from the books (Eliot Dudik, Matt Eich, McNair Evans, Erica McDonald, Michael Jang, and Lacey Terrell) selected by Gwen Lafage (Founder, Gallery Carte Blanche).

The exhibition “A Survey of Documentary Styles” looks at the “documentary tradition” through the lens of a 21st century, global photographic community in which the lines between journalism, art and the long-term documentary project have blurred, morphed and continue to feed off of each other.

The books selected for this exhibition present a range of subject matter, each coupled with a particular visual language drawn from a pool of diversity. There are books that speak a more traditional documentary language, while there are those that explicitly critique that very same tradition; there are diaristic books and titles that overlay a typological structure; other books rely primarily on found and vernacular imagery; and there are many books that borrow heavily from an art-photography storehouse. The goal of this exhibition is to survey the field before us and to foreground questions of authorship, voice, style and content.

You will not be disappointed.

 

The EXHIBITION CATALOG, designed by Patrick Aguilar of Owl & Tiger Books, can be purchased through the Blurb bookstore.
