Unseen Unravelled All This Week... Day 1

So, I am back! And what a week it has been. I can't quite describe just how much has been experienced, produced and is going to happen, but I think the best way to start is from the unravelling of the Unseen Photo Fair, day by day all this week. So to get us in the mood, on this Monday evening/ morning for others, lets start with the Foam Magazine Talent Launch where my first publication, "The Photograph as Contemporary Art" gets reviewed by the wonderful Sebastian Hue from Le Bal in Paris.

Here is a little excerpt from the Book Review section, " This handmade artist's book refers, in content and title, to a volume originally published in 2004 by Charlotte Cotton that presents an overview of a new generation of photographers who entered the art market in the nineties......Her book presents the text pages without the photographs along with her own puzzling and colorful exploration of space and dimension, with figures that seem to either embrace or fight. Think John Stezaker reworking Egyptian movie posters......Melinda Gibson's work feels as precise and exploratory as her elegant book, and her investigation of the holes and creation of new ones provide ample food for thought."
