The Capture Photography Festival presents the Vancouver Photo Book Fair, from April 21st to 23rd. The event is held at the Western Front (303 East 8th Ave) with a series of talks and workshops at James Black Gallery (144 East 6th Ave).
"The Vancouver Photo Book Fair surveys one of photography's earliest forms of dissemination—the photo book—demonstrating how this vital form continues to evolve, push the conventions of artists' books, and carry photography into new contexts.
Free and open to the public, the Vancouver Photo Book Fair is Vancouver's first art book fair dedicated to artists whose book-making practices incorporate or intersect with photography and lens-based art. The multi-day event encompasses an engaging program and a variety of local and international artists, collectives, and publishers.
The Vancouver Photo Book Fair is organized in partnership with the Vancouver Art Book Fair (VABF), the longest-running international art book fair in Canada, which takes place every October at the Vancouver Art Gallery."
