PHOTOFAIRS New York 2023 : Printed Matter


Printed Matter participates in the inaugural edition of PHOTOFAIRS New York, taking place at Javits Center. A large presentation of books was curated that will represent the many ways in which publishers and artists experiment with photography in the book form. You’ll find hundreds of artists’ books playing with collage, risograph, and text in exciting ways and non-traditional ways.

On Friday, September 8 at 3pm, Printed Matter will present a conversation between Latin American photobook publishers and artists: Oswaldo Garcia of Gold Rain, Martha Naranjo Sandoval of Matarile Ediciones, and Carlos Loret De Mola of Los Sumergidos.

The three will discuss the evolution of their collaborative practices, questions of region and diaspora, and the stakes of self-publishing vis-a-vis self-representation. They will also touch upon the uniqueness of independent and small press publishing economies and its relationship to the larger culture of photobooks. The conversation will be moderated by Sonel Breslav, Director of Fairs & Editions at Printed Matter.

Privileged Mediocrity examines systemic unfairness in the United States. Using a mix of conceptual and documentary photographic practices, I reacted to the the subtleties of societal power and its impact on the built environment of America and the construction of public and private space. The ideas within explore how racism, capitalism, and power have shaped our country — and how that can be seen and experienced in everyday life. – Kris Graves
