“A Survey of Documentary Styles in Early 21st Century Photobooks”
Duke University
Power Plant Gallery
Power Plant Building, Suite 100 American Tobacco Campus
320 Blackwell Street Durham, NC 27701
Phone: 919-660-3622

September 19–November 7, 2014
Reception: October 9, 2014, 5–8pm, with Larissa Leclair of the Indie Photobook Library

The Indie Photobook Library’s seminal traveling exhibition, curated by Larissa Leclair and Darius Himes, arrives at Duke, after stops in New York, San Francisco and DC. “A Survey of Documentary Styles in early 21st century Photobooks” draws from the iPL collection and features 70 photobooks. The exhibition 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.

The exhibition catalog, designed by Patrick Aguilar of Owl & Tiger Books, is available through Blurb.

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.

About the Indie Photobook Library:
Founded by Larissa Leclair in 2010, the Indie Photobook Library is an archive of self-published and indie published photobooks. This includes DIY, photobooks independently published and distributed, photography exhibition catalogs, print-on-demand photobooks, artist books, zines, photobooks printed on newsprint, limited edition photobooks, and non-English language photography books, etc. The iPL promotes and showcases the books in the collection through international pop-up and feature-length exhibitions, articles, conferences, guest lectures, and also preserves them as a non-circulating public library. Having a specific collection dedicated to this contemporary movement in publishing allows for the development of future discourse on trends in self-publishing, the ability to reflect on and compare books in the collection, and for scholarly research to be conducted years, decades, and centuries to come.

The Indie Photobook Library has an open and ongoing submission policy. Photobooks can be donated by the artist, indie publisher, or private collector. All books become part of the permanent collection and are considered for yearly exhibitions.

The Indie Photobook Library @ PHOTOVILLE

September 19-29, 2013

Brooklyn Bridge Park, The Uplands of Pier 5, New York

On Saturday, September 21 from 2-5pm, founder of the iPL, Larissa Leclair, will be in the exhibition space. Please come by and say hi!

The Indie Photobook Library’s seminal traveling exhibition, curated by Larissa Leclair and Darius Himes, arrives in New York, after stops in San Francisco and DC. “A Survey of Documentary Styles in early 21st century Photobooks” draws from the iPL collection and features 70 photobooks, along with a selection of photographs from the books. The exhibition 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.
