Organization: SPAO - School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa

This fall SPAO is highlighting the unions that can exist between photo and text. At our annual Open House on November 1st SPAO is holding its first Book Market. This will be a special event that will allow the public to browse and purchase books by artists working within photography and text.

Book Market will be held in SPAO’s newly completed photo-book library. SPAO will have a dedicated staff member to oversee book sales. SPAO’s Open House event sees on average 800 people in one night and is an excellent opportunity for artists working in the medium.
