IPA Photo Books Show 2013

IPA Photo Books Show 2013

Saturday 19th – Sunday 20th October at National Museum of Singapore


Singapore’s first Book Exhibition & Fair event dedicated to Photography & a one stop showcase of regional independent photo books!

A spontaneous light bulb idea last year turned into IPA Singapore Photo Books Day – a highly successful Book Fair dedicated to Photography. The event returns this year again for a second edition in what will now be called the IPA Photo Books Show!

IPA Photo Books Show 2013 will take place from Saturday 19th to Sunday 20th October 2013 at the National Museum of Singapore, 93 Stamford Rd, Singapore 178897. The two day event includes a book fair participated by Singapore and regional photographers with self-published books, and a book exhibition curated by the IPA team. Audiences will be able to not only view and browse some of the best photo books published in Asia, but also interact and engage with the talents behind them.

The program also includes 2 exclusive workshops: an intensive ‘Photo Project to Photo Book Workshop’ mentored by 2 leading contemporary photographers Ian Teh (Malaysia/UK) and Kosuke Okahara (Japan); and a ‘Make Your Own Singapore Photo Book Workshop’ with the Twentyfifteen.sg team.

Other highlights include:
  • Hourly talks and presentations on photography & book-making;
  • Photo book launches and debuts from Tay Kay Chin (Singapore),  Bob Lee (Singapore), Eiffel Chong (Malaysia), and Kim Hak (Cambodia), to name a few;
  • Winners Showcase of the inaugural Invisible Photographer Asia Awards.

“IPA Photo Books Show is one of our marquee efforts to bring greater visibility to photography and photographers in Asia. With our second edition, we hope to make a small step towards a notable bookmark in the calendar for independent photography and self-publishing in Singapore and the region.” Kevin WY Lee, founder of Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA).

  12. Hi, I’m interested in the 2 day photobook workshop, but I’d like to speak to someone about the actual content of the workshop and what we will produce in the end. Also, I don’t want to miss: Printing a Photo Book: From a Printer’s Perspective: Presentation by Grenadier Press. Will this type of subject be covered in the workshop?
    Thanks,
    Sue
