The PBC at the Cheltenham Literary Festival and 10×10 American Photobooks

Next weekend, on Saturday 5th October (6pm) I will be in Cheltenham to hold a special Photobook Club meetup as part of the Cheltenham Literary Festival. The event is being organized by Grant Scott of ‘United Nations of Photography‘ who has put an a big weekend of photobook talks and seminars to coincide with the historical festival.

All of the talks and events are free, all I would ask for the PBC event is that you bring along a photobook which you think is particularly interesting for it’s use of text alongside image – perhaps it is just the titles, perhaps the accompanying essay really alters your reading of the images. Whatever it may be, bring it along and we will talk image and text with a few drinks.

Event begins 6.00pm Saturday 5th October, 2013: The University of Gloucestershire Tent, Imperial Square, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

And in other news, the awesome 10×10 American Photobooks publication is soon to be posted out. The book has a great list of contributors plus me talking about a love affair with America through photobooks. I have yet to get my hands on a copy but it looks like the design and production match the content’s high standard so it is no wonder a whole heap have already sold. Head over here to get a copy.
