The Melbourne Photobook Collective is a group of artists/photographers based in and around Melbourne. Our collaboration is founded on a shared interest in making and talking about photobooks. We participate in art and photobook fairs where we sell our work and talk with others about making and reading photobooks. This website is another way to share and talk about photobooks.
The Abandoned Series is published by Albumen Publishing. The series brings together photobooks that each in its own way explore how we see and deal with things abandoned, past by. Covering a wide thematic spectrum – ranging from architecture to everyday objects – the titles ultimately share a common interest in how we deal with the transitory nature of the world around us.
Melbourne Photobook Collective members are contributing to this series, and the books can be found in the shop for purchase.
