At CU Photography we always love a Photobook!
On 8th February we were lucky enough to welcome Daniel Boetker-Smith and the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive. A number of books from the archive were available for students and staff to explore and discuss with Daniel.
As the name would suggest, all of the photobooks have originated from the Asia-Pacific region, giving many photographers and books an international audience that would not have otherwise been possible.
“We receive photobooks kindly donated to us from all over the Asia-Pacific region – the majority of which do not have international distribution. The books are then showcased at our permanent archive space in Melbourne. More importantly, we actively promote photobooks by traveling the archive to international festivals, fairs, and books exhibitions each year.”
