A few of their titles, among them my book To pick up a stone, are part of the ‘Power of Photography, in Print’ exhibition, a wonderfull selection of international photobooks. The exhibition can be seen till the 15th of November 2023 in Daegu Arts Center Gallery 12, South Korea.
Contemporary photobooks have evolved beyond traditional formats, showcasing innovative designs and forms. This exhibition presents 100 photobooks that capture the characteristics of the photographic medium, alongside 24 books delving into the history and significance of photobooks. Many out-of-print or hard-to-find books are on display, so we kindly ask for your interest and attention. Additionally, 26 domestic and international artists, photographers, editors, designers, publishers, curators, and researchers participate in a commentary format. Through their perspectives, this will be an opportunity to explore the contemporary value of photobooks from various angles.
