2017-08-21T13:00:00Z 2017-10-15T13:00:00Z UTC Exhibit: Paris Photo: Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards In the Lunder Arts Center Atrium gallery we are presenting Aperture Foundation's annual show of chosen photography books that have been selected for this year's awards. The show runs from August 22 – October 15, 2017. Atrium Gallery, Lunder Art Center, 1801 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02140

Initiated in November 2011, The Paris Photo Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards is a celebration of the photobook’s contribution to the evolving narrative that is photography. This exhibition includes the selected titles, with the categories of First PhotoBook, PhotoBook of the Year, and Photography Catalogue of the Year.

This exhibition is evidence that we have reached a highly sophisticated level of photobook production, in which there is a tremendous plurality of styles – from the baroque to the minimal. As juror Anne Wilkes Tucker points out, “People are thinking increasingly in sequences and bodies of work, and of the book as their primary form of presentation.”

Each winner is selected upon the basis of the quality of the photographs, their sequencing, the relevance of the book’s conception, and its characteristics as an object, including its graphic design, editorial structure, and the quality of its fabrication.
