PSC’s Bachelor of Photography Course Director, Daniel Boetker Smith, has been chosen by Photo-eye USA to shortlist the best photobooks of 2015. Photo-eye is a prolific journal of international photography excellence and the world's largest online photography bookstore, based in Santa Fe. For the past 6 years, Photo-eye has put together a multi-contributor list comprising a range of photographers to recommend their favourite books of the year. The hope is to increase awareness of new artists and to allow people in the photography community to discover and explore the published works of artists from around the world.As most of you already know, Daniel has been the frontrunner of photobook promotions, being the director of the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive and the co-founder of the Photobook Melbourne Festival. He curates photobooks exhibitions and events internationally, for National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne), Artspace (Sydney), the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), Angkor Photo Festival (Cambodia), Obscura Photo Festival (Malaysia), Aarhus (Denmark), Photo Ireland (Dublin), the Leica Centre (Washington DC) and RayKo Photo Center (San Francisco). Every year PSC Degree students are encouraged to publish their own photobooks for exhibition and presentation. For those who have attended the PSC End of Year Exhibition and more recently the graduate show Thirty One, you would have seen an extensive display of books created by our students.Photobooks are one of the trends in the current industry that allows students to express strong narratives and stories. At PSC we’re delighted to be at the forefront of this growing trend and excited to have the right people guiding our students in this domain.
