The book Photophobia was launched 4 October 2013, with TrAP as publisher. The book is already sold out in Norway, but is distributed in USA through Artbooks. Photophobia attempts to capture the artist's creative process in his work with multiple exhibitions, and in the initial phase of his next feature film. Editor Brynjar Bjerkem writes in the introduction to the book:

"Designer João Doria has crafted a book based on his impressions of Apichatpong's tensions between the manifest and the hidden, the real and the dreamlike, the seen and the remembered, exploring also Apichatpong's use of light as a narrative element."

Primitive is the publication accompanying Apichatpong Weerasethakul first New York exhibition, devoted to the work of the Thai filmmaker (born 1970). The complex spatial and temporal relationships that his narrative films suggest are explored most boldly in the Primitive project (2009), which received its American debut at the New Museum. Primitive is Weerasethakul's most ambitious project to date: a multi-platform work consisting of an installation of seven videos and one related short film that capture the social and historical reality of the rural village of Nabua, which was devastated by decades of violence between the Thai military and Communist-sympathizing farmers. This catalogue reproduces stills from the Primitive project alongside an interview with Weerasethakul and critical essays.
