Independent photography publications and its distribution

Sonia Berger

From 11 am to 12:30 pm

Centro Federico García Lorca


We have seen an emerging trend develop for the last few years: the growing interest towards photo books and the spread of publications and specialised forums, fairs, and workshops, among others. The photo book is creating great impact in the contemporary visual culture.


It is particularly interesting the fact that not only bibliophiles, academics, or art historians are attracted by photography books but also is a wide public located outside the publishing world. The objective of this talk is to undertake an overview of the Spanish and international independent photography publications, to asses the reasons for its success, and to show the different forms of distribution and dissemination.
