The event for photobook aficionados, experts, collectors, dealers, publishers and photographers


With its previous editions ViennaPhotoBookFestival has firmly asserted itself as one of the main events among the European photobook community. The Festival continues its successful path in 2016 and maintains its unique position as a market place for independent publishers, artists and rare photobook dealers. Visitors of the 4th edition of ViennaPhotoBookFestival will once again have the opportunity to revel in elaborately and affectionately designed photobooks by cutting-edge artists and small publishing houses.
