Chose Commune: Salon #20

French Publisher Chose Commune in Association with the International Center of Photography Library

On Tuesday, 25 April 2017, we spent an evening at the ICP Library with Cécile Poimboeuf-Koizumi and Vasantha Yogananthan of Chose Commune. 

Founded in 2014, Chose Commune is a French independent publishing house devoted to photography books, which values book-objects with bold design and editorial choices. It aims to publish emerging photographers as well as established figures with unpublished material. 

Cécile and Vasantha will share their personal projects (Vasantha is in town receiving ICP’s 2017 Infinity Award for Emerging Photographer), and some recent award-winning Chose Commune photobooks, including Shoji Ueda (2015), Astres Noirs by Katrin Koenning and Sarker Protick (2016), The Promise by Vasantha Yogananthan, and Sobras by Geraldo de Barros (2017).

Cécile Poimboeuf-Koizumi, born in 1987, is a French publisher. Vasantha Yogananthan, born 1985, is a French photographer and publisher. He is currently working on a long-term project in India, A Myth of Two Souls, inspired by the epic tale of the Ramayana.
