Art Book Show

Photography and the Everyday

Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre

Dec. 2nd – 4th 2016

In a time when the global publishing industry is in dire straits and the book in its physical form is threatened by digits the photobook seems to be going through a revival. That is partly due to the very technologies that initially appeared to be threatening the physical existence of the photo book; digital technologies which provided unprecedented possibilities/opportunities for self or commercial publishing. Laying out and producing zines, photobook dummies, home-made photobooks, print-per-order publications and the like have never been easier. As a result the photobook is currently flourishing and remains central as home to photography. At the same time the photobook many times comes through as one of the most democratic and accessible arts mediums as it allows ownership of art in a physical form by a wide and varied audience.
