The Vancouver Photo Book Fair surveys one of photography’s earliest forms of dissemination—the photo book—demonstrating how this vital form continues to evolve, push the conventions of artists’ books, and carry photography into new contexts.

Free and open to the public, the Vancouver Photo Book Fair is Vancouver’s first art book fair dedicated to artists whose book-making practices incorporate or intersect with photography and lens-based art. The multi-day event encompasses an engaging program and a variety of local and international artists, collectives, and publishers.

Admission to the VPBF at Western Front and James Black Gallery is FREE. We regret that neither the Grand Luxe Hall at Western Front nor James Black Gallery are wheelchair accessible.
