Paris Photo – Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards 2016

28 Nov 2016 to 14 Jan 2017

On 28 November, continuing Ivorypress’s support of emerging talents in photography, the gallery hosted an exhibition of the photobooks shortlisted for the fifth edition of the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards.

The books on display were divided into three categories, corresponding to the awards for which each book is nominated: the First PhotoBook, given to emerging artists or first-time bookmakers; the PhotoBook of the Year, which gives special recognition to more experienced bookmakers; and finally, the Photography Catalogue of the Year, which recognizes the importance of visual scholarship, as well as the use of the book platform as a means of ‘installing’ and further expounding on the content of a curator or author’s research.
