Photobooks have been one of the most effective means of expression for photographers since photography began. They remain in circulation, are portable and can be reissued, thus reaching a larger public than an exhibition ever could. To date, hardly any research has been conducted into Belgian photobooks. Photobook Belge aims to fill this gap by providing an overview of the evolution of the Belgian photobook from the mid-19th century to today.
This exhibition and publication are finally giving the Belgian Photobook – a concept in itself – the recognition it deserves. The publication Photobook Belge is published by FOMU in partnership with Hannibal.
