As Douglas points out in his introduction below, this is not a Photobook Club meetup, but perhaps with a good turnout it will evolve into one. Either way, it’s organized by Douglas Stockdale of ‘The Photobook‘ blog, so you know it’ll be a good’n on the 18th October.
For all the details, see the Facebook event page here. I have included some of the introduction here;
Please join me for one evening this month as I share a pop-up photobook exhibition of the vast majority of the photobooks that are currently included in my exhibition at FotoGrafia Festival Internazionale in Rome Italy, which explores the theme of “work”. I will provide a short introduction about my selection for this exhibition and discuss a few of the photobooks.
Although this is not an official PhotoBook Club event per se, it is an exploratory meet-up to determine an interest in a PhotoBook Club group in Southern California. The issue in the past for similar meet-ups to this has been that Southern California is a very large and spread-out region, that a meet-up in Orange County may not be suitable for those in Santa Monica, the SF valley, SG Valley or San Diego. Thus the main reason that this is an exploratory meet-up!
This PhotoBook pop-up exhibition will run concurrently with the Photographic Exchange meeting.
Exhibition venue: Irvine Fine Art Center, 14321 Yale Ave, Irvine, CA 92604
Date and duration: Thursday, October 18th, 2012 from 6:30 pm to 9:0 pm
I look forward to seeing you there.
