MAKE YOUR INSTA PHOTOBOOK with the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive


  • Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive, Level 1 43–51 Cowper Wharf Roadway Woolloomooloo, NSW, 2011 Australia (map)

At VOLUME 2015, the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive (APPA) will be showing a large selection of books from its collection, some never seen before in Australia.

The APPA team will also be running FREE photobook-making workshops 'with a difference'...  See what narrative you can give the everyday by simply going through your instagram account and using the hashtag #volumeIGbook to alert us to which images you want to be printed for you. We search for the #, download and print out your images so you can sort, sequence, bind and share your photobook. The APPA team will have printing and binding facilities on hand to help you make your book. All materials included, workshop is open to all ages over the entire weekend (from 11 am on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September).   

We will display a collection of the photobooks for the duration of VOLUME 2015, after which they can then be collected or submitted to the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive.

The Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive (APPA), is a not-for-profit physical archive of self-published and independent photobooks established to promote the production, dissemination and discussion of photobooks from the Asia-Pacific region. 

The APPA provides a ‘real’ way to see photobooks with a permanent space in Melbourne open to the public, and a program of events at photography festivals, and institutions all over the world. Since 2013 the Archive has held events in Melbourne, Sydney, Tokyo, Cambodia, Malaysia, Dublin, New York, Washington DC, & San Francisco.
