The ‘Photo Book Club Barcelona’ community is continuing to grow and just this week, held it’s second photobook meet-up in the city. This time attendees were discussing the design aspects of their favorite books as well as being joined by Carlos Albalá, co-editor of the spanish independent publishing house BSide Books who introduced Daniel Blaufuks’ Terezin photobook.
A few images from the event can be seen below, and if you are in town and would like to meet up with this growing group of photobook fans, head on over to their Facebook page to get all the details.
The Photo Book Club Meet-up map has now had over 10,000 hits and a smattering of people adding themselves to the map in order to meet up with like minded ‘photobook-folk’. We also have the first few meetings shown on the map so make sure you check out if they are near you!
Some people have contacted me having trouble with adding themselves onto the map and so in order to make this smoother, I have created a form below and on the Meet-up page which when filled in, will be sent to myself in order to add you to the map.
If you are planning to host or organize a meeting, pop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall add this to the map as well as publicize it on the website.
The map is still public and can be edited by anyone, this public nature also means that the information you provide can be seen by other users. If you would rather, you can provide a website instead of direct contact information, and a rough location rather than your house!
A Photo Book Club suggests physical meetings, and it is something we have always wanted to be part of, and help facilitate. And so you can now find a map on the ‘Meet-ups’ page which we hope to get populated with people and meeting places.
Wayne and I will take part in potentially the first meeting this September as part of Photobook London although if anyone has a meeting before let us know!
The map can be seen below and can be edited by anyone
