Meanwhile in Barcelona….

Jon Uriarte, who does an awesome job organizing the Photo Book Club Barcelona meetings got in touch with news on a ‘gastro meeting’ held yesterday and the upcoming event with Steidl screening:

Yesterday we celebrated a special session: Photo+gastronomic+book Club at Elgoibar ( close to San Sebastián). It was gastronomic because after sharing books, we also had lunch together. We had a “photographic menu”, first a Fontcuberta Soup (it look like a chicken soup but it wasn’t…), an Elliot Erwitt black and white rice, Gregory Crewdson sorbet and a Jeff Wall cake. We had a great time, participants brought great books, such as Ortiz Echagüe’s Tipos y Trajes published in 1957.

JEFF WALL CAKE

Next Wednesday 29 at 19:30 we will have our regular meet-up in Bcn, this time there wont be a guest but instead a screening of the documentary  “How to make a book with Steidl”. So, we will be seeing the movie, talking about it and discussing about photobooks that were made by editors instead of photographers.
