Visit the Center for Creative Photography to explore 150 self-made contemporary photobooks, displayed on tables to allow visitors to handle, read and explore them — a first within the center’s galleries. The subject matter and approach to bookmaking is so varied, there is sure to be something for everyone.

The books were selected for the first triennial exhibition by a jury of seven industry professionals, and were first installed in the Doris and John Norton Gallery for the Center for Creative Photography at Phoenix Art Museum in the spring of 2014. Jurors reviewed nearly 300 submissions and selected those photobooks that exhibited thoughtful design, sophisticated relationships of image and text, and innovation in the book form.
