We will be holding our inaugural meet-up at Photobook London in the evening with an informal event of books, discussion and beer.
As well as the Photo Book Club bringing a selection of the books they have looked at over the past 6 months, those who wish to attend are asked to bring along a photobook to share and discuss. After the event, one of these books will be chosen to be January’s book on the Photo Book Club.
This event has a limited number of spaces, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space.
Date: Monday 5th September
Location: PhotoBook London
29-31 Saffron Hill
London EC1N 8SW
The Photo Book Club Meet-up map has now had over 10,000 hits and a smattering of people adding themselves to the map in order to meet up with like minded ‘photobook-folk’. We also have the first few meetings shown on the map so make sure you check out if they are near you!
Some people have contacted me having trouble with adding themselves onto the map and so in order to make this smoother, I have created a form below and on the Meet-up page which when filled in, will be sent to myself in order to add you to the map.
If you are planning to host or organize a meeting, pop an email to email@example.com and we shall add this to the map as well as publicize it on the website.
The map is still public and can be edited by anyone, this public nature also means that the information you provide can be seen by other users. If you would rather, you can provide a website instead of direct contact information, and a rough location rather than your house!
Actually, there is no book for August! We were planning to look at Nan Goldin’s ‘Ballad of Sexual Dependency’ but have recently agreed to several events in September, and so are going to take a month out.
We will be looking at Goldin’s masterpiece in October now, and September itself will be a special month, with Ken Schles joining us to get involved with the discussion of his book ‘Invisible City’.
And so what are these events? Well, more details will follow shortly and be posted here, but for now we can say they involve the two following exciting projects.
