VU regularly publishes volumes related to its public activities, in particular catalogues of events. These publications seek to provide artists and scholars with new ways of disseminating their work while at the same time contributing to advancing critical discussion of photography.
Editions J'ai VU disseminates contemporary photography from Quebec and the rest of Canada by publishing books that present innovative ways of thinking about photographic art. The series Livres d'artistes gives voice to artists by enabling them to use the book as a creative space in its own right. The series L'image amie explores the relationship between photography and literature, while the series L'opposite brings together artists and authors from a variety of disciplines to think about the various uses to which photography is put.
