Photobook 2016: Photography and the Everyday
In a time when the global publishing industry is in dire straits and the book in its physical form is threatened by digits, the photobook seems to be going through a revival. That is partly due to the very technologies that initially appeared to be threatening the physical existence of the photo book: digital technologies which provided unprecedented possibilities/opportunities for self or commercial publishing. Laying out and producing zines, photobook dummies, home-made photobooks, print-on-demand publications and the like have never been easier. As a result, the photobook is currently flourishing. At the same time, the photobook often comes through as one of the most democratic and accessible arts mediums as it allows ownership of art in a physical form by a wide and varied audience.
Acknowledging and responding to the expanding impulse to create, disseminate and own photobooks, as well as to its potential as a democratic medium, NiMAC (Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre—Associated with the Pierides Foundation) and IAPT (International Association of Photography and Theory) are pleased to announce a special themed photobook exhibition as part of the 4th International Conference of Photography and Theory (ICPT 2016).
