Streamed Live, In Conversation, Now Available

If you didn't manage to get along to TPG on Monday afternoon or forgot to stream the talk live, do not worry as the video is now available to see on The Photographers' Gallery YouTube Channel, in this link here -

It is best to watch from 15m46s, as the first 15 minutes are behind the scenes. In someways it is like watching a silent movie, but without an dramatic chorus or music to elevate our speech! 

It was a thoroughly enjoyable conversation which brought up some key issues around the idea of audience interaction, performance and what the medium of the photobook can be. More video's available from the other talks, all part of the SPBH Business As Usual - Week residency at TPG.

In Conversation - The Photographers' Gallery - Monday 23rd November From 16:00 pm

To celebrate the launch of the new SPBH Book, published by Aperture, Self Publish Be Happy: A DIY Photobook Manual and Manifesto, I am very pleased to announce that I will be doing an, 'In Conversation' with Mr Bruno Ceschel, part of the Self Publish Be Crafty - Business As Usual Residency at The Photographers' Gallery on Monday 23rd November from 16:00 pm. We will also be joined by a young artist, former student of ours, from the Camberwell College of Art, Liam Magee. It looks to be a great afternoon, discussing our practice and of course the notion of the book.

Here is a little excerpt about the book, which features my first publication, The Photograph As Contemporary Art.

"An economic and cultural revolution has shaken the photobook world in the last five years: self-publishing. An army of photographers operating as publishers have had an instrumental role in today’s photobook renaissance. This book offers a do-it-yourself manual and a survey of key examples of self-published success stories, as well as a self-publishing manifesto and list of resources."
