ACP Photobook Fair
Piedmont Park Community Center
Featuring work by: Various Artists

Other: Sat, Oct 22, 9am - 1pm

ACP is one of the first organizations to hold a photobook fair featuring self-published photobooks. Our third Photobook Fair will be bigger and better than ever. This event offers photographers an opportunity to show (and sell) their self-published books, and offers the public an opportunity to see (and purchase) these rare, limited-edition objects.

Photography Books are more popular than ever - and the fastest growing segment of photography books are those that are self published. With an ever growing selection of ways to publish your own book, photographers are now able to realize projects that are meant to be seen in sequence, or that translate best in book form. The only downside is that there aren't many avenues for getting your books seen outside of your circle of friends. Do not miss this rare opportunity to see these extremely limited edition works of art!

Special Exhibitors include:
Indie Photobook Library
Shock Design
Fall Line Press
