Photobook Club Barcelona Meetup #7; A Report

The longest standing branch of the Photobook Club based in Barcelona and run by Jon Uriarte has just had it’s 7th meetup held at Foto Colectania, a big thanks to Markus Furgber for sharing this report and also the images of the event shared below;

The seventh meeting of Photobook Club Barcelona took place on Tuesday, 9th of October. This time we moved to Foto Colectania, a private foundation, dedicated to collecting, conserving and exhibiting fine art photography. The collection is specialized in Spanish and Portuguese photographers from the early fifties up to now.

About 30 enthusiastic photobook fans gathered together around the large white table. Jon Uriarte hadn’t given us any theme for this meeting, so everyone was free to introduce one of their favourite photobooks. The selection was great and very interesting. The variety of authors and themes was impressive. One of the highlights was “Lisboa, triste y alegre“, a first edition, presented by Pepe Font de Mora, president of the foundation.
