Although digital images dominate visual culture today, the photobook remains a meaningful and thriving form. A deliberate, ordered, and sometimes narrative arrangement of photographic images bound in a book with little or no text, the photobook is an intimate presentation from photographer to viewer, one on one. This selection of photobooks and photo zines, created by an international group of women artists in the last ten years, embodies essential truths told through eclectic visual vocabularies. The images encompass coldly objective photographs of American locations of mythic importance, digital photos snapped through a car window, and prints resulting from experiments with expired photo paper.

The Library and Research Center is open Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–12 p.m. and 1 p.m.–5 p.m. and is closed on major holidays.
