The Camera Club of New York will host the fifth annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair, Saturday-Sunday, September 13-14, 12-6pm, with an opening reception Friday, September 12, 6-8pm. Four artist curators have chosen books on the theme of “destruction, violence, reconstruction,” and there will be a special performance by the artist collaborative NOWORK. The work of photographers David Brandon Geeting, Denise Schatz, and Grant Willing will also be shown. The event will be held at Foley Gallery, 97 Allen Street, off Delancey.

The curators include Lindsey Castillo, Fryd Frydendahl, Jesse Hlebo, and Jason John Würm, with special assistance from Kara Hayden. The theme “destruction, violence, reconstruction” pertains to the sense of unrelenting political, economic, and social distress in the world and the instability that the distress causes in people”s lives, directly or indirectly. NOWORK will make zines related to breaking news, as a performance.

Castillo, an artist and curator who has been organizing events for CCNY for the past five years, currently works on handmade woven textiles and indigo dyeing. She continues to develop projects that seek to inspire and create new and diverse conversations that pertain to photography and film. She received a BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts.

Frydendahl, from Denmark, and based there and in NYC, currently has a solo show called Salad Days at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, and recently exhibited at 2014 Frames, Projecting International Photography, in Glasgow, Scotland. She has published several books with her photo projects such as Winter, The Summer of Yes, and Family Album. She graduated from Fatamorgana, The Danish School of Art and Photography, and from The International Center of Photography’s General Studies Program in New York.

Hlebo, an artist based in NYC, has exhibited and performed in, as well as curated, numerous solo and group shows internationally. Venues include the MOMA Library, MOMA PS1, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Clocktower Gallery, Museum of Arts and Design, Printed Matter, Inc, and Storefront for Art and Architecture in NYC; Family in Los Angeles, The Luminary in St Louis, the Khyber Center for Contemporary Art and NSCAD in Halifax, Nova Scotia, among others. Hlebo is also the co-founder of _ Quarterly, a publication focusing on themes of obsolescence, and is the founder of Swill Children, a small press and record label focusing on notions of value as they pertain to small run, physical objects. He is the founding editor of Paperweight, a collectively operated site devoted to facilitating a critical dialogue on, and providing resources for, independent publishing. He holds a position on P-MAG (the Printed Matter Advisory Group).

Würm grew up in the U.S. and Germany and earned his BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts. He utilizes a documentary style of photography to record the ephemeral. In his belief that photography is best understood through practice, he has amassed an extensive archive of images, predominantly made in NYC and Brooklyn. His work has been exhibited nationally and published in The New York Times and The New Yorker. In 2012, Würm founded Waal-Boght Press to promote straight photography through annual publications.

NOWORK, formed in 2011, is a platform for collaboratively produced, anonymous projects that relate to New York City, with a focus on photographic material in public spaces. Not citing individual authorship for their work has allowed them to treat their source material, whether taken or found, as part of an act of re-circulation. Their published works have been exhibited at the 8-Ball Zine Fair, New York Art Book Fair, the LA Art Book Fair, Open Space Baltimore, among other venues.

The CCNY Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and through the generous support of The Tierney Family Foundation.
