Established in 2014, Gueari Galeri is an independent photobook gallery and publisher based in Jakarta and Bekasi, Indonesia. Our core focus lies in utilising the power of photography and photobooks as tools for self-discovery and catalysts for positive change through the presentation of personal narratives.
During our talk we will not only discuss our initiatives, but also share insights from our research on mapping Indonesian photobook publishing in the digital era. Join us as we explore the intriguing interplay between traditional craftsmanship and modern technology, shaping the creation, distribution, and consumption of photobooks. Additionally, we will delve into the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital era in photobook publishing.
