As we go from summer to fall and say adiós to that afternoon glass of rosé, it is time to catch up on photobooks. Here comes our second salon of the new season.
Please join 10×10 for a “Pre-NY Art Book Fair Photobook Evening” with Belgian photographer Max Pinckers and Mexico-based Dominican photographer Alejandro Cartagena. In addition, we welcome Maciej Markowicz, who will share his fascinating camera obscura van project The Moving Camera.
As always, photobooks will be available for browsing and purchase.

Max Pinckers grew up in Asia and then moved to his native Belgium. Pinckers‘ work is largely oriented around long-term subjective documentary projects presented as photobooks and installations such as The Fourth Wall and Will They Sing Like Raindrops or Leave Me Thirsty. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at Bozar – Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels; Fotomuseum, Antwerp; and Flanders Center, Osaka, among others. In 2015 Max Pinckers became a nominee member of Magnum Photos.
Maciej Markowicz is a Polish artist who lives and works in Brooklyn. After a childhood spent in his grandfather’s painting studio and his father’s metal shop, Markowicz pursued photography, studying in London and New York. His work combines photography and design to explore the pictorial language of fine art with the intrinsically utilitarian orientation of graphic design. Markowicz is inspired by the basic principles of photography, its ability to draw light, and poetic immaterial impressions of place.
