Please join us for a Reception Friday 16 November 6:00 – 8:00 pm at International Center of Photography Library
“Argentinian photo book production has increased significantly in the last few years. La Azotea, directed by Sara Facio was one of the first publishers of photo books in the region, and that initiative diversified lately to incorporate other publishers, such as Lamarca, Lariviere , La Luminosa or the collection of Fotografos Argentinos. Books by young artists are produced in growing numbers, and there is an active photo production and photo book scene. A small selection of this emerging activity is displayed in the ICP Library window, in dialogue with the upcoming exhibition and seminar “The Latin American Photobook” to be held this month at the Aperture Foundation.” – Marcelo Brodsky
We are delighted to have yet another international ambassador working on behalf of the ICP Library, the artist and bibliophile Marcelo Brodsky!
This summer [his winter] Brodsky gathered a selection of contemporary photography books in Argentina and they are all arrived and also cataloged into our collection now, as well.
A complete list is coming, but if you are in New York, I hope that you can join us tomorrow evening to celebrate the acquisitions together with Brodsky and enjoy looking through these books, most of them the only copies in a U.S. library.
