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 VPBF is Vancouver’s first art book fair dedicated to artists whose book-making practices incorporate or intersect with photography and lens-based art. Featuring an engaging program and a variety of local and international artists, collectives, and publishers, VPBF is anticipated to attract over 1,000 visitors from across the Greater Vancouver area and beyond.

About the Festival
Launched in 2013, Capture Photography Festival is dedicated to championing photography in all its forms. The Festival celebrates local and international lens-based artists while provoking dialogue about photography as both an art form and a method of communication.
In addition to the Vancouver Photo Book Fair, Capture 2017 presents photography at over 50 galleries throughout the Greater Vancouver area, with a full roster of thought-provoking exhibitions, tours, films, artist’s talks, and panel discussions.
The Vancouver Photo Book Fair is organized in partnership with the Vancouver Art Book Fair. The longest-running international art book fair in Canada, VABF takes place every October at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The multi-day festival surveys the spectrum of artists’ publishing practices locally, nationally, and globally through three rooms of exhibitors and a diverse line-up of talks, performances, screenings, and artist projects.
