September 13, 2018: In it’s efforts to help build and support the local photography community, the Amsterdam Photo Club is proud to become the official sponsor of Self Publishers United. A collective of more than twenty local photographers who have published their own photography books. The recently founded group will present itself for the first time at a stand during the UNSEEN book market. There they will show their most recent book publications. Contacts have been made for events that take place later this year, such as Paris Photo and the Antwerp Academy Art Book Fair.
We believe printed photo books are an essential tool for today’s photographers. Technology has acted as enabler, making it possible for today’s photographers to design and showcase their work through a vast selection of designs, without being limited by publishers.
