“Looking at the submissions, I am encouraged by the diversity of approaches and the attention to craft that the photographers have displayed, vis-a-vis the making of their photo books. In this sense, unlike some Euramerican commentators, I do not think that we are looking at the death of photo books. At least that’s not the case in Southeast Asia, where more and more artists/photographers are exploring various ways of publishing their works, at the same time, tapping into the social media to get the word out.

In the finalists of this category, we have photographers who see the photo book as a device to spotlight an urgent issue in the world. We also have practitioners who see it more as a collectible object.” Zhuang Wubin, IPA Photo Book Asia Award 2013 Judge

“This very first IPA Photo Book Award competition is especially exciting. The book submissions are of quality in terms of imagery, text and contextual meaning in the topics that each photographer/artist explored. The diversity of genre and subjects that were submitted was also very interesting, ranging from fine art, documentary to journalism. All the artists have shown finesse in crafting their books. I applaud all of them for their efforts and approach.”
Chow Chee Yong, IPA Photo Book Asia Award 2013 Judge

“I am very flattered to be part of this competition again this year. This year I have seen very interesting bodies of work from dozen of candidates. Some work involved a slight documentary approach, some have very interesting concepts behind it.

Street photography to me is not just simple documentation. It can also be used by the photographer himself or herself to pursue particular interests. I am happy to see a lot different styles and different work on the street level.” Ying Tang, IPA Street Photography Asia Award 2013 Judge.
