Rojo, Muerto O Real : Taller De Apropiación, Reciclaje Y Reinvención De (Foto) Libros - 6 & 7 February At Centro De La Imagen - Mexico City

RED, DEAD OR REAL is a workshop of appropriation, recycling and reinvention of (photo)books lead by myself and Brad which takes place on the 6 & 7 February at the Centro de la Imagen in Mexico City!!! We are beyond excited to have developed and lead this workshop in a city which we have both dreamed of visiting and we would like to extend our greatest thanks to all the wonderful supporters, staff and curators who have made this possible - huge thanks to the Centro de la Imagen, Natasha, Mariela and our dear friend David Solo.

The workshop seeks to review, challenge and create new versions of photo-publications of a political nature in a theoretical, creative and participatory space to debate. Participants will work on the idea of the red note publications not only as a book, but as a means to challenge, in broader terms the methodology of violence coverage in journalism in Mexico. Thus, they will develop anti-content that deconstructs seminal publications of photography and sensationalist magazines seeking to generate subversive reinterpretations.

Red, Dead or Real will be taught by myself and Brad Feuerhelm, who participate in Reversiones, an exhibition that is currently exhibited at the Centro de la Imagen as part of the E.Folio.001 (Encounter on the contemporary photobook). 

Aimed at artists, photographers, photography students, editors, illustrators, bookbinders and amateurs. All you need to do is submit a brief registration form setting out your ideas and reasons behind wishing to attend along with a portfolio of your work (no more than 15 images in a single PDF format) to the Centro de la Imagen by email by Thursday February 1 at 2:59 pm (Mexico City Time).

Happy New Year - 2018, A Year For Adventures

As we enter into 2018, I don on my black and white top hat, lay with the silver streamers and listen to vintage jazz thinking about all the exciting and wonderful opportunities that will come from this exciting and adventureous New Year! I was truly delighted to see in the new days in style, at a delightful Copenhagen dinner party with new friends.

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a truly beautiful, inspiring and loving new year that is filled with the most magical days. May each day be filled with love, light and much laughter and all that each of you could wish for. This year IS set to be one of the best yet!

First stop for me will be; next month in the wonderful Mexico City and I just cannot wait, more to come on this soon...
