Report from the other side and Ojalá to be included in the show DIY (Visits Chicago): Photographers and Books

Two of my border issues books, report from the other side and Ojalá (co-authored with Leon de la Rosa) will be included in the curated show DIY(Visits Chicago): Photographers and Books which will be exhibited from September 18 to December 7, 2013 at Columbia College Chicago's Center for Book and Paper.

The opening reception takes place on September 18, from 5-7pm.

This is a second iteration of an exhibition exploring print-on-demand photo books. Originally curated by Barbara Tannenbaum for the Cleveland Museum of Art, DIY: Photographers and Books (2012) was the first museum show to focus on the impact of print-on-demand publishing on contemporary photographic practice. This is a juried exhibition focused on photobooks that move beyond the monograph. The show asks the question: How do photographers engage the book form in ways that are experimentally visual and conceptual, while pushing the possibilities of print on demand publishing?

The jury was Greg Harris, Associate Curator, DePaul Art Museum; Karen Irvine, Curator & Associate Director, Museum of Contemporary Photography; Jessica Cochran, Curator of Exhibitions and Programs, Center for Book and Paper Arts; and Steve Woodall, Director, Center for Book and Paper Arts.
