The Library Project

The Library Project

In 2011, PhotoIreland started a comprehensive collection of books, magazines and zines on contemporary Photography, a collection planned to be the core of a free public library and reading space in our future premises. The collection, now called the Library Project, began with the Book & Magazine Fair in 2011 and is part of a PhotoIreland’s growing collections on Photobooks.

Visitors will be able to browse through our library of over 700 photobooks, magazines and zines from both well-established, large publishing houses as well as independent publishing companies and enjoy this year’s newly added publications. The collection on show is open in its conceptual framing, including photobooks and magazines from more than 150 publishers from every part of the world – a rich example of contemporary publications focused on Photography, Art, Design and Illustration.

The collection includes some of Martin Parr’s 30 best books of the decade, and also PhotoIreland’s first publication, produced to accompany Parr’s exhibition with the same name. It is planned a reprint of the book, as the first edition sold out.
