AWAKE!
An Evolving Photobook Library of Liberty and Resistance
Free-the-Image-and-Free-the-Speech

An open call by 10×10 Photobooks for photobooks, zines and photobook-related materials focused on political and social protest. Submit here!

The contemporary world is in a state of upheaval and transformation. We are living in a time where the political environment is murky, disorientating and ugly. The discussion now urgently shifts to the role of the arts and the artist during this period of dramatic and crucial political and social change. This is also applied to the role of photography and the photobook. 10×10 Photobooks will be providing a platform for the sharing of these extremely important ideas. With this in mind, and drawing upon the long and profound history of protest photobooks, 10×10 is placing an open call for contemporary photobooks focused on social and political themes.

We are looking for contemporary artists’ books, zines, photobooks and photobook-related materials that assert their dissatisfaction, their dissent and their protest with the world today. We are living in a time where power resides in the hands of too few, and we rightfully and across the globe are outraged. Documentarians, artists and creators are all responding in a myriad of different ways: 10×10 is not looking to define your protest. Our mission is to bring together your voices existing and provide amplification through a series of touring AWAKE! reading rooms.

Awake! is a space where your voices and your eyes do not have to be compromised. By sharing all our ideas and creations together, we can establish some clarity on our communal thoughts and utilize this information to establish a true and coherent opposition to the tyrannies that are currently trying to erode our liberties, rights and freedoms that have taken generations of struggle to achieve. Please join us in this Cry for Freedom and participate in Awake!

Submission Guidelines for AWAKE!

This is a completely open call for photobooks, zines and photobook-related materials responding to liberty, resistance and the political environment of today. Please follow this link to submit your work.

We are receptive to all and anything that is created or has been created (as long as it is book-related). We only ask that the submitter tell us how their book relates to liberty and resistance.

The first Awake! Reading Room will be exhibited at the PGH Photo Fair at the Carnegie Museum from April 29 to 30, 2017. Only a selection of the zines, books and materials submitted will be exhibited (not all will be selected for the reading room). However we will find a suitable home in an institution or library for ALL materials submitted. Therefore, all materials will eventually have a home in the world providing free access to the public.

Only submissions received by April 3, 2017 will be considered for inclusion in the Awake! Reading Room at the PGH Photo Fair.

Child’s Play: Photobooks for and about Children

On Sunday, February 12, 2017, we gathered on Manhattan’s upper west side for presentations on photobooks for and about children and adolescents by Sara Kramer of New York Review Books Classics, photographer Isabelle Evertse and photobook collector and translator Frédérique Destribats. 

Sara Kramer is the managing editor of New York Review Books Classics and the New York Review Children’s Collection, where she oversaw the 2012 rerelease of Eikoh Hosoe and Betty Lifton’s children’s classic, Taka-Chan and I: A Dog’s Journey to Japan by Runcible.

Isabelle Evertse is a photographer, curator and editor based in France. She founded piK magazine, dedicated to promoting photographers worldwide in March 2012 and has written reviews for several publications including Aperture and Off The Wall. She recently launched her own photobook alongside Kummer & Hermann, a project published by A-Jump books in 2016. In addition, Evertse publishes Co-Curate magazine, a limited edition publication that invites a different editor to collaborate with her for each issue. The current issue, focused on adolescence, is co-curated with Frédérique Destribats.

Frédérique Destribats works as a translator with a focus on photography and art, collaborating with various international publishers, editors, institutions, galleries and artists. She recently initiated a publishing platform, The Sunday Publisher, home to the collections Photographers’ References, a series of in-depth conversations with artists, and d&books, exploring the relation between textual and visual narration. For the past year, Destribats has been researching several public and private children’s photobooks collections.

And a big thank you to Deirdre Donohue and the International Center of Photography Library for allowing us to share a few of the children’s books in their collection.

Protest Photobooks and Literature from Japan and the USA

On Sunday, February 12th at the Magnum Foundation in NYC, 10×10 was pleased to hold an evening of presentations on Japanese and American protest photobooks and literature with photographer John Gossage and cultural strategist Danielle Jackson.

A highly respected photographer, John Gossage is well known for his more than 35 artist’s books and photographic publications, including his groundbreaking 1985 photobook, The Pond. Having devoted his life to photography and the music of Charles Edward Anderson Berry since the age of 14, Gossage is also recognized as an important and early advocate of Japanese postwar photography. Over the years, he has amassed a working library that contains most of the seminal Japanese photobooks, including protest books from the 1960s and ’70s. Gossage‘s presentation will focus on protest photobooks by both known and unknown photographers from Japan.

Danielle Jackson is interested in the efficacy of social protest beyond political demonstration. She will consider how strategies such as non-participation, spectacle, and self-invention have been conveyed through photography, performance, and nonfiction literature. Jackson has worked with leading photographers, filmmakers, and cultural institutions to develop projects, partnerships, and initiatives for social impact. She has worked with Magnum Photos, Stanford University, NYU, WNYC, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, MoMA, Tribeca Film Institute, and Open Society Foundations. She is the co-founder and former co-director of the Bronx Documentary Center, an internationally-recognized gallery dedicated to photography and social change. Her projects have been covered in media outlets including CBS Evening News, the Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, Slate, New York Magazine, The Guardian, among others. She currently teaches for Stanford in New York and International Center of Photography.
