NOCTURNES is part of the Exhibition "Reading a Photobook" in St. Petersburg

We at dienacht Publishing are happy and honored that NOCTURNES is one of only 15 books at the exhibition "Reading a Photobook", among authors / photographers like Cristina De Middel, Taryn Simon, Alec Soth or Erik Kessels!

The project “Reading a Photobook” is a guide into contemporary photobooks and into the diverse ways of “reading” them. The project consists of an exhibition, a workshop, and a competition on photobook review writing. “Reading a Photobook” focuses on both a photographer and a critic, an image and a text, practice and theory. The exhibition, located at the Gallery of Printing, presents 15 works grouped into five chapters according to ways artists work with their material: photobook as a research, as a collaboration, as an experiment, as an image, and as a publication based on a different book. Will you be interpreting photographs, analyzing design and texts, comparing a book with another one, or just scenting an odor and feeling the touch of paper?.. Visitors will choose their own ways of “reading” photobooks. As well as they will be introduced to photobook world's experts' opinions about publications through a take away booklet full of quotations from blogs, books and other platforms devoted to photobooks.
