Photobook Collection

This collection of over 300 titles reflects the growing interest in photography as an art form, both within the UAE and in the programs and curriculum of the NYUAD campus.

Begun in collaboration with Akkasah: The Center for Photography, at NYU Abu Dhabi, this collection seeks to pull together a representative collection of books created by photographers themselves, in which their works are framed and formatted according to their own aesthetic visions, and not merely compilations of their work produced by other editors.
