The ‘Other’ Photobook Forum: Artists’ Books, Zines and the Photobook

The rise of the photobook has created a re-writing of the history of photography. Another history of photography and the book can be found in the artists’ books and zines. This forum is curated with the intention of bringing together key stakeholders from these ‘other’ photobook disciplines to discuss and provide commentary on the photo in the book. The forum and the dialogue it creates will serve to place the photobook within a wider creative context.

The forums’ convener is Dr Doug Spowart, artist and researcher. Contributors include:

Dr Lyn Ashby
is a book artist living and working in Melbourne

Des Cowley
History of the Book Manager, State Library Victoria

Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison
artists’ book and zine makers

Georgia Hutchison
artist, designer and educator

Peter Lyssiotis
artists’ book photomonteur
