The Capture Photography Festival, in partnership with Vancouver Art Book Fair (VABF), launches the inaugural Vancouver Photo Book Fair this April 21–23. The Fair surveys one of photography’s earliest forms of dissemination—the photo book—demonstrating how this vital form continues to evolve, push the conventions of artists’ books, and carry photography into new contexts.
