The Photographic Book
From August 16 to September 14, 2018
Bibliothèque Gabrielle-Bernard-Dubé | Quai des arts | 774, boulevard Perron | Carleton-sur-Mer (secteur Carleton)
For four years now, Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie has mounted an exhibition devoted to photobooks. In doing so, Rencontres is calling attention to the importance of the photographic book both as a form of expression and as creation in its own right in photographic practice. Once the exhibit concludes, all books will be donated to the Gabrielle-Bernard-Dubé municipal library in the town of Carleton-sur-Mer, with the goal of building a collection.
EXHIBIT AT RENCONTRES
In offering visibility to the photobook, Rencontres is also seeking to sensitize the general public as well as collectors to its value and to its interest as a collectible item.
