Meetup Roundup – 22nd October

Have just returned from a great week away in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia. I was speaking at the Open Education Conference held by UBC about the Photobook Club, it’s origins and it’s meetups.

While I was there I ran a meetup over at Luz Gallery in Victoria and there were several meetups elsewhere also. Below is a quick roundup of these meetups and details on upcoming events.

Photobook Club Barreiro 13.10.12


The Photobook Club Barreiro held their inaugural meetup on the 13th October. The group looked at Sharon Lockhart’s Pine Flat which is not a book I am familiar with and so very glad they also put together this video of the book. You can see more images from this session on the Photobook Club Barreiro’s Facebook Page.

The next session will take place on November 10th and will be featured in the books:
– The Complete Untitled Film Stills Cindy Sherman
– My Frontiers of João Miguel Baptista (guest artist)

(NOTE: The sessions are always the second Saturday of every month)

Photobook Club Victoria 15.10.12


As I mentioned the other day, I had perhaps the most picturesque journey to a meetup yet, leaving Tsawassen bay and heading out to Vancouver Island and down to Victoria. The meetup was still the highlight of the night with a great turnout and some great and varied books brought along. Thanks to Quinton and Diana for their hospitality at the fantastic Luz Gallery.

Photobook Pop-up exhibition/Photobook Club Southern California 18.10/12

Douglas Stockdale of the excellent ‘The Photobook‘ blog recently held a pop-up photobook exhibition and meetup at the Irvine Fine Art Center in the city of Irvine, California. Doug is a real photobook ambassador and deserves lots of props for this great event. He is also assesing the possibility of a regular Photobook Club in S California so if you are in the area, let Doug know you are interested.

Nice to see the Photobook Club badge being worn proudly too 🙂
