The Festival was pleased to present a selection of over 400 photo-books from more than 70 countries, including photo-books independently or commercially published and distributed, handmade, self-published, book dummies, exhibition catalogues, zines and limited edition photography books, etc.
The exhibition took place at the 8 different venues in and around Dehradun, that is bordered by the majestic Himalayas in the North and the Shivalik Hills to the South, the holy Ganges river on the East and river Yamuna to the West, providing an opportunity for the audience to explore the diversity of contemporary photographic books. Our events and exhibitions were intended to be informative, educational and interactive. They helped us build a strong, connected and well-informed community.
The Kitab provided the perfect opportunity to familiarize yourself with the history, present and future of the photo-book, both in a national and international context. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all the photo-book-makers and publishers from all over the world for their unwavering and unending support.
