The self-published photobook is an exciting new avenue for photographers to present their work directly to the public. In addition, the photobook itself can be a work of art.
As part of the Davis Orton Gallery’s commitment to showcasing the work of contemporary photographers, the Gallery is sponsoring a juried photobook competition culminating in a gallery exhibition and sale.
