Happy to announce that ‘Overnight Generation’ is now part of the permanent collection of CAMeC – The Centre of Modern and Contemporary Art of La Spezia, Italy
Huge thanks to curators Saul Marcadent, Francesca Cattoi and Mario Commone for your support.
Overnight Generation book will be displayed at CAMeC – Centro Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in La Spezia, Italy as part of the exhibition “READING PHOTOGRAPHS” (“Leggere Fotografie”)
“Reading Photographs, an investigation of the link between photography and the art book. In the digital age, which seems to herald the end of the printed page, we are witnessing a proliferation of art works which combine photography and books, refocusing on the need for art as object. The exhibition, in two sections, points out the passionate aspect of the collection, conservation and propagation of important private collections and in a parallel way directs our attention to the contemporary publishing scene through a selection of self-productions and publications from independent publishers”

“We are proud to announce the launch of Venezuelan photographer Italo Morales‘ first publicaton entitled ‘Overnight Generation‘ at the DMB/Lucid-ly Space in Shoreditch.”
“Since its conception in 2012, the book has been shortlisted at Kassel Fotobookfestival’s Dummy Award, and was a finalist for the New York Photo Awards, and winner of the Photobook Slam at C/O Berlin.”
“This is the second time the work is shown in London, after its initial appearance in the LCC Nursery Gallery and the Freshfaced+Wildeyed exhibition at the Photographers’ Gallery.”
“Overnight Generation is a personal exploration of the often laborius life of post-war Sarajevo. It is not meat to be a moral admonition or a political indictment; it does not show the misery of the war as other publications on the subject do. This book provides a fascinating view of the young generation of one of the most exciting and at the same time most complex European capitals”
Please join us for the evening.

About Indie Photobook Library
Founded by Larissa Leclair in 2010, the Indie Photobook Library is an archive of self-published and indie published photobooks. This includes DIY, photobooks independently published and distributed, photography exhibition catalogs, print-on-demand photobooks, artist books, zines, photobooks printed on newsprint, limited edition photobooks, and non-English language photography books, etc. The iPL promotes and showcases the books in the collection through international pop-up and feature-length exhibitions, articles, conferences, guest lectures, and also preserves them as a non-circulating public library. Having a specific collection dedicated to this contemporary movement in publishing allows for the development of future discourse on trends in self-publishing, the ability to reflect on and compare books in the collection, and for scholarly research to be conducted years, decades, and centuries to come.
