Although in the last few years there have been numerous panels, presentations and talks that have dealt with photography books, interest for that medium has not decreased. It was in a way the right time to exchange the experience so far about photography books as a medium.
Hoxton Gallery brought together PUBLISHERS: ARON MÖREL (MÖREL BOOKS), JESSIE RAMSAY (TROLLEY BOOKS), ARTISTS: TOM LOVELACE, DOUGIE WALLACE, WIEBKE LEISTER, JUSTIN COOMBES, TERESA ENG, VICTORIA JENKINS, CHRISTIAN BREMS and PETRA MRSA, to discuss this topic further.
We focused on sharing experiences and learning where each guest was both teacher and pupil. We had the opportunity to hear first hand experience from up coming and established artists and publishers about various photography projects that have been published. After individual presentations, we had discussion about the photography book as a medium in general, about the value of photography books in the current climate, issues of publishing particular projects, pros and cons of self-publishing etc.
