Tweets and links—The friday after 01/pics from activities

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:

01/ Pics and tweets from organized activities (including instagrams, facebook, links…)

02/ Late or last minute offers from bookshops and publishers

03/ Late programmed activities

04/ Critics or reflections and some humour

05/ Selfies and Shelfies

06/ The Map


Let’s begin with a few moments from some of the activities that took place around the globe. It was a global party!

Some are just an example of a facebook album, you will have to click to see them all. If you organized any activity and have a link with an album, some pictures, etc., please, include it on the comments.

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.
