Our exhibition “ Ping Pong: 30 Young photobooks vs. 30 Classics”. aims to create a free tree structure between the different categories of books that crossed and made history and the new vibrant publishing practices. We collected fanzines, DIY short edition, micro-edition thanks to an open call.All the classics will come from the Public Library of the Chateau d’Eau (Paris).All the photobooks will be donated to the Public Library of Chateau d’Eau.

The Public Library of Chateau d’Eau is the only one specialised in photobooks in Paris, counting with a collection of 2,500 titles on loan.
