At the Book Market, Unseen celebrates the printed and bound counterpart of image-making: photobooks. This space gives more than 60 international independent book-makers a platform to present their recent publications to an international audience. 2017 will also mark the sixth year of the Unseen Dummy Award, the award winner is selected by an international jury and will receive a grant to make his or her very first publication.
