Be part of
the library collection
The Library Project was born as a response to the lack of adequate specialised Photography bookshops in Ireland. Over the last years, we have been promoting publishers and publications from all over the world at PhotoIreland Festival’s Book & Magazine Fair during July, and at our venue outside the festival period. We are both informing Irish audiences with the public resource library and developing a market for these specialised publications.
The collection now offers over 1500 items from over 200 publishers, making it the most comprehensive collection in Ireland of contemporary publications on Photography. It is composed of a mix of donations from photographers and publishers wishing to promote specific products to our audience, and purchases by PhotoIreland Foundation. So far, the collection has been displayed in cities around Ireland, and it often travels abroad to places like Photobook Melbourne, Photobook Week Aarhus, Self Publish Riga, and Fotobok Gbg amongst others. The full collection is available online and it receives regular visits by students, photographers, researchers, and tourists.
If you want to contribute to this resource, get in contact, or send us information about the publications you wish to include in the collection, in advance to shipping them, with this submission form – so they will be listed straight away on arrival.
You are welcome to send us your latest publications and promotional material, including posters and flyers. Also, if you have a promotional idea, would like to celebrate a book launch at the venue, display a branded book stand, etc… we are open to ideas.
