Photobook belge 1984 - now

59.00 EUROS

Since the birth of photography, the photobook has always been an essential medium for photographers wanting to display and distribute their work. But the photobook is more than just a display case: it’s a means of expression, an art object, a historical record, a propaganda tool, a multi-sensory experience. Photobook Belge is the first ever overview of photobooks created by Belgian photographers.
Covering a period of more than 150 years, from the mid-19th century to the present, it features almost 250 photobooks, all carefully described and illustrated. It’s the first time that research into the production and context of Belgian photobooks has been carried out on this scale. In so doing, it sheds light on a hitherto neglected part of Belgium’s long and fascinating photo history. Over time, the Belgian photobook has become well established. With Photobook Belge, it finally gets the recognition it deserves.
