The Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive is a not-for-profit organisation that operates a permanent photobook library in Melbourne, Australia; we run a programme of international travelling photobook projects, events and exhibitions. We travel all over the world with our books showing them at fairs, festivals, workshops and talks.
The books in our collection get seen all over the world; photographers submit one copy but that one copy might feature in four or five different events in any one year.
We do not sell photobooks, nor are we a library – all of the photobooks in our collection are donated by artists, publishers and collectors from all over the Asia-Pacific region. Our website features extensive information about each publication, as well as links to the photographer/publisher websites. We also feature interviews and information about photobook publishing.
