Photobook Library

The photobook or zine is one of the best ways of presenting and disseminating your work to a wider audience. Now its time to share them with everyone.

Every photobook or zine is an expression of an artistic vision. Each one an exhibition, a mark in the timeline of the artists career.

We believe in nurturing, educating and sharing our knowledge and expertise with others and therefore we encourage everyone to share their work with the world.

We believe these photobooks and zines should be out on the shelves where the public can see them, not locked up in an archive somewhere.

So we are going to build one of the largest public libraries of self-published photobooks and zines in the world.

We want to welcome everyone to browse the books and zines and be awed and inspired by the huge wealth of talent we know is out there.

Help us make this happen by contributing your photobooks and zines.
