Koestenbaum’s work, both in poetry and nonfiction, has explored the social and mental life of American queer intellectuals. Humiliation, Koestenbaum’s critically acclaimed disquisition on the meaning of humiliation (both personal and universal), was praised by John Waters as “the funniest, smartest, most heartbreaking yet powerful book I’ve read in a long time.”

Pop-up Exhibition of the Indie Photobook Library and Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive

Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 11-6pm
Talk by Larissa Leclair and Christine McFetridge 4:30-5:30pm

Hosted by Leica

Washington, DC 20004

The Indie Photobook Library welcomes the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive to the United States! Come join us in DC for the third stop in the APPA’s roadtrip of pop-up exhibitions. For the first time ever, the iPL and APPA will exhibit together contemporary self-published photobooks from around the world from both of their permanent collections. Browse almost 100 titles, socialize, be inspired, get creative!

Modeled after the Indie Photobook Library, founded by Larissa Leclair in 2010 and based in the DC area, the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive (APPA) is a unique collection of self-published, limited edition, and handmade photobooks and zines whose sole purpose is the promotion of photographic work/books from the Asia-Pacific region. The AP region has some of the most exciting and vibrant photographic work being produced currently – due to economic and, sometimes, political and social constraints, photobooks from most countries in the AP region are not able to be seen at fairs and festivals internationally, and do not get shortlisted for the top awards in the USA and Europe. The Archive redresses this balance by getting copies directly from the photographers themselves, from countries big and small in the Asia-Pacific region and then traveling to events and festivals worldwide to show and promote these books; these books are ones that would not be seen and experienced otherwise. In 2013 the Archive traveled to Tokyo, Cambodia, and Malaysia, and in 2014 with huge collection of books now in the Archive we are traveling to the USA to bring a selection of photobooks never before seen in North America.

The Archive has a permanent home in Melbourne, Australia, which is open to the public, researchers, artists, and institutions. The Archive also runs photobook talks, workshops, competitions, discussions, advisory sessions, and helps unknown Asia-Pacific photographers to get their work published. The Archive is directed by Daniel Boetker-Smith; Daniel is also the founder of Photobook Melbourne, an international photobook festival happening in February 2015 in Melbourne.

Architecture Seen: Photography Contest

The Emerging Professionals Committee of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Baltimore Chapter presents Architecture Seen, AIABaltimore’s 2014 Photography Competition. This year’s theme is “Entryways.”

Call for Entries:

Submit your entries through before the entry deadline on September 29, 2014.

Please contact the Photo Contest Committee at with any questions.

The competition is open to the general public. Sorry, professional photographers are not eligible at this time.

Entry Fee:  
All proceeds will support the initiatives of the Emerging Professionals Committee of AIA Baltimore.  Fees include up to two entries per entrant per category

  • AIA/BAF members = $20.00
  • Assoc. AIA members = $15.00
  • Non-AIA Members = $25.00
  • Students =  $10.00  AIAS/NOMA Members = $5.00

Category 1 “The Big Picture”
This photo category focuses on defining entryways on a “large scale.” These are the public spaces in Baltimore that we encounter throughout our daily activities.  Think about the types of spaces defined when entering the city by train or car.  The entryway could show a destination point or feature a transition of spaces along streets or public areas.  An entrance or signature view to a college campus, or park perhaps.  This could be a picture that explains the character of a neighborhood or a threshold between neighborhoods.

Category 2 “The Finer Details”
The “smaller scale” photo category focuses on more intricate spaces that relate to the human proportions, such as an entrance to a building. Think about how the material selection, light, and colors are used to define the space.  Is the design informed by the people entering and using the space?  Is there a special history or story related to this place?

Part 2 Write a short description
Write a short description (2 or 3 sentences) telling how the photo fits into one of the categories and indicate the significance of what the photo captures.

Submission/Upload Requirements:
1) JPEG image of each entry, 300 dpi uploaded through Submittable
2) Contact information for the photographer
3) Short Description of the photograph

All entrants grant express permission to AIA Baltimore to use all photographic entries for exhibitions, publications, and promotional purposes. All winning entries will become the property of AIA Baltimore. Submission of entry implies acceptance of all above conditions.
