Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation Best Photobooks of 2019 Shortlist

This prestigious collection of Fine Art Photobooks is a provocative, creative and beautiful display of books by photographers, journalists and artists, assembled by the celebrated magazine Aperture in collaboration with the international photography festival Paris Photo.


Books will be on display for viewers to page through in the gallery. The subject matter ranges from highly personal visual essays and political documentaries to elaborate museum catalogs of historical importance. Publications are from a wide range of countries in Asia, Europe, North and South America, and this will be a rare opportunity to experience the contemporary culture of countries including the U.S., Italy, Ukraine, Uruguay, Poland, China, Japan and Bolivia.

Student groups are especially welcome, and we can arrange for a gallery tour with advance notice.

The Gallery is open during library hours: Tuesday and Thursday from 9 am to 8 pm, Wednesday from 9 am to 5 pm, Friday from 2 to 6 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm. For more information, call 802-375-6153, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
