After the World PhotoBook Day hangover there will be some new posts gathering some tweets and links about all the activities that took place past 14th October.
We hope all of you had an exciting day full of recommendations, with your favourite photobooks, or at your favourite bookshop, maybe with friends or just in your own photobook thinkings.
These posts will be about lists of things we couldn’t post here previously due to we had a full busy day, and some reactions in tweets/pictures shape. Let’s summarize:

Excerpt from tv program “Casa das Artes” by RTP Madeira in which Carolina Azkue speaks about this photobook “outo olhar”, first of Zyberchema publishing house, launched on World PhotoBook Day.
Katrin Koenning's selection for our World Photobook Day event yesterday was – 'Will They Sing Like Raindrops or Leave Me Thirsty' (2014). Self published by Max Pinckers. Katrin spoke eloquently about how this book uses a unique visual language and reframes approaches to documentary photography. She spoke of its use of complex and rich narratives whilst still being grounded in social, political & religious commentary.

Drew Pettifer's selection for our World Photobook Day event @strange_neighbour and @photobookarchive was Ryan McGinley's self-titled book from 2002. Drew spoke about this early seminal McGinley book as a key influence for his own practice. And the accessibility of the Zine format as a way to experience McGinley's exploration of the public and the private – and his beautiful use of nature as a site for freedom and release.
Yesterday (October 14th) was World Photobook Day, and to celebrate a group of book nerds (including myself) were invited by @photobookarchive to choose and share our favourite photobook. Here's a picture of me trying not to freak out about public speaking with Audrey the amazing @strange_neighbour hound. 📷 by @sarahpannell
