Emile Rubino: Photography Books Index
Nov. 6-30, 2012, in the Library Mezzanine Gallery
This installation is composed of pages coming from three discarded photography books indexes found at the Emily Carr University Library book sale. Those books, which were published in the 1980s at a time when photography was expanding in a significant way, were a response to an obvious need and desire to index all of this production in the most exhaustive manner. Today with the digitalization of indexes and the new complexities introduced in the medium of photography, these indexes belong to another era and are being discarded.
