Rencontres d’Arles Festival, 07/2011
” LE GARAGE is an itinerant exhibition project born out of a common love for photography-related books and publications.
We are a small group of photographers and photo enthusiasts based in Paris. We launched the collective project LE GARAGE to develop the interest, fecundity, and creativity characterizing the phenomenon of the photobook today. By welcoming new works in development, all related by their consideration for the form of the photobook, LE GARAGE offers an insight into one of the most dynamic fields of today’s photographic practice.
Began at the Rencontres d’Arles Festival in July 2010, the original exhibition featured a curated series of 35 photography artist books and book dummies, chosen for their merit and the extent to which they pushed the twin mediums of photography and photography books.
