Heads up Vancouver-based photographers and photography-lovers, the Vancouver Photo Book Fair is happening in a week over at Western Front! There aren’t too many things I love more than a good book of photos and this event is free and open to the public!
This first-ever Vancouver Photo Book Fair is organized in partnership with the Vancouver Art Book Fair, which is the longest-running international art book fair in Canada! Have a look below at all the full info including the event hours and full list of local and international exhibitors!

Fiiiirst is a project by Guillaume Tomasi which orchestrates exchanges between pairs of photographers whose identities are kept secret from one another. One photographer shoots a photo and the other responds to it with a photo of their own. They go back and forth for a couple months and then the results are published and identities are revealed. The images I’ve included here are from an exchange between photographers Valerie Chiang and Olivier Seignette. Have a look at the rest of their conversation below.
