Founded in 2011, Spaces Corners is an artist-run bookstore and project space based in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The bookstore stocks a rotating selection of new photography books from some of the world’s leading independent and small press publishing houses. In 2013, Spaces Corners launched it’s own imprint to further collaborate with artists, institutions and collections.
Spaces Corners is led by Melissa Catanese and Ed Panar. Together, they have curated exhibitions surveying the contemporary photography book and are regular guest critics at Hartford Art School’s MFA photography program. Melissa and Ed also serve as faculty at Image Text Ithaca, a low-residency MFA program at the intersection of writing and photography.
