Spotlight Award, Laura Wexler and Larissa Leclair © Silke Hase

On October 25, 2014, Larissa Leclair was honored with the Spotlight Award from the Griffin Museum of Photography in Boston, Massachusetts. The award was presented by her former Yale professor Dr. Laura Wexler. The Focus Awards at the Griffin recognize individuals making critical contributions to the promotion, curation and presentation of photography. The awards this year celebrate four people and organizations instrumental in building greater awareness of the photographic arts in the general public. The Spotlight Award is given to an entity that consistently shines a light on photography and has created a far reaching impact in the field. Jim Dow, Dr. Becky Senf, and Elin Spring were also honored this year. Previous recipients include Deborah Willis, Anne Wilkes Tucker, Kathy Ryan, Shane Lavalette, Jen Beckman, among others.

The Indie Photobook Library on TIME LightBox!


The Indie Photobook Library is TWO!

On May 13, 2012, the Indie Photobook Library celebrated its 2nd Anniversary. Thank you to all the photographers/artists/bookmakers that have made the collection what it is today! I’d also like to thank Advisory Board members Darius Himes, Andy Adams, Shane Lavalette, and Gabe Reed and all the venues that have welcomed the iPL. In the last two years, the collection has grown to almost 1000 books. The iPL continues to promote and showcase 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. I am looking forward to continuing the iPL mission.

Cheers,
Larissa Leclair
Founder, Indie Photobook Library
