CLAP! 10×10 Contemporary Latin American Photobooks is a photobook reading room that presents 130 contemporary Latin American photobooks from 2000 to 2016. All the books in the CLAP! reading room were donated as a complete collection to the Hirsch Library at the MFAH in March 2017.
Selected by 12 Latin American specialists (either in teams or individually), the reading room is a hands-on opportunity for North American audiences to browse a range of recently published Latin American photobooks that are rarely seen or available in the US.
The selected books, representing many of the most exciting innovations in contemporary Latin American photography and publications, will be documented in the forthcoming (Release: March 2017) comprehensive CLAP! book, designed by Ricardo Báez with essays by Luis Weinstein and Joaquim Marçal F. de Andrade.
