Little Big Press: Book’s Space

About This Project

 

Book’s Space investigates the nature of the photography book by connecting the artistic project with the book as object, the work of the photographer with that of the designer: two ideal focuses that often coincide in everyday production – the photographer is a designer too, and sometimes not an artist – or they take on more complex functions that involve many more people, from the editor and curator to the printers themselves. Concentrating on some of the most interesting publications released between 2014 and 2015, the book is deconstructed as project, story and object. This horizontal and vertical exhibition on the one hand accompanies the publications with short interviews with photographers and designers and elements such as the first scale models or various materials, and on the other, develops through dialogue between images. Eight projects are on display as well as the 20 most interesting books selected from the online contest.
