Description

According to Martin Parr (born 1952) the Photobook is the ‘supreme platform' for photographers to disseminate their work to a mass audience. The increase in self-publishing platforms, specific prizes for photobooks, and a growing body of collectors is testament to the growth of the photobook genre within photographic practice.

The event was held to mark the launch of The Photobook: A History, Volume III .
