This exhibition reasserts the role of the photobook in contemporary visual culture and advocates a reinterpretation of the history of photography by way of photobooks and the printed photograph. Among its many contents, "Photobook Phenomenon" spans works by Rodchenko, William Klein and Robert Frank to Japanese photobooks, pioneers in the phenomenon. The photographer Martin Parr presents the best examples from his own private collection. A section dedicated to protest and propaganda photobooks brings together the most radical designs. Other names appearing in the exhibition include Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Gabriel Cualladó and Henri Cartier-Bresson along with the latest work of renowned contemporary artists who bring their own very special vision to the medium, such as Laia Abril and Viviane Sassen, as well as illustrating the creation process of a photobook.
