May-June: Indie PhotoBook Showcase at Candela
Indie PhotoBook Showcase at Candela
May 6th – June 18th, 2016
Meg Griffiths, De las montanas, from the series Casa Particular, 2014.
Photography has a long and intertwined history with the book form. The synergy between the book and the photograph has not only continued, but significantly expanded as a powerful platform for photographers to present their work.
This May, Candela Books + Gallery will feature a compelling selection of work from eleven well-crafted, self-published and small press photography books:
Eliot Dudik & Jared Ragland
Louviere & Vanessa
Justin James Reed
Ain’t Bad Magazine
Flash Powder Project
Horse & Buggy Press
Horse Think Press
One Day Project
The purpose of the exhibition is to highlight the range of ways independently published photography books are being produced today. As a publisher, Candela is committed to the quality and design of the printed medium. We believe the photographic books on view have an intimate relationship with each photographer’s work and make a remarkable contribution to their legacy.
Candela will host a Indie PhotoBook Fair Saturday, May 7th, from 1 – 5pm. Followed by a Panel Discussion from 5 – 7pm on Saturday, May 7th. Be sure to join us and immerse yourself into the photographic printed matter.
Kurt Simonson, Birdhouse, from the series Northwoods Journals, 2011. 22″x 28″ Archival inkjet print.
The work will be on view May 6th – June 18th, 2016
