As part of MPS507, a 3rd year Ryerson University Image Arts class in The Photographic Book, students conceive of, and create their own photobook. This is, in part, related to work that has been completed in the co-requisite class, MPS506 – Photographic Production. These are both required courses for the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Image Arts) Photography Studies Option. Each year, the Library purchases the top photobooks in the class from the creator. The books are judged at the First Edition Photobook Show – an exhibition of the photobooks at the end of the semester. The library catalogues each book, and houses them in the Special Collections department, where they will be available for students and researchers.
