I now have a new blog, it can be found HERE!
I won’t be using this blog any more but will keep it live so that my archive posts can be perused.
My first self-published photobook, A New Market Town, was launched on Friday 1st June and is now available to purchase online, at Enjoy Art Space until Friday 8th June and at Infinity Graduate Show at Leeds College of Art from the 15th June.
The books inner leaves were printed at Team Impression, but all other aspects of the book were hand made, including a screen printed cover and printed insert.
Every book comes with a free betting slip. The bets were put on by myself for races in the future, meaning that by purchasing the book you could be receiving a winning bet as well!
A massive thank you to the incredibly talented Arthur Carey, who designed the book and helped so much throughout the process.
The first edition is a limited run of 20 books. Preview the book via Issuu.
The past couple of weeks have been pretty manic- finishing my degree, making a book and putting on our first exhibition outside of the college of art, The Story So Far. The exhibition opened on Friday night at Enjoy Art Space- thank you so much to everyone who came down and made it an incredible night for all of us!
Here a few snaps that photographer Adam Tanser took for us at the opening.
The show is still open- Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 - 4.
To coincide with the exhibition, the four photographers involved in The Story So Far produced a self-published newspaper, designed by Niall Hargrave and printed by The Newspaper Club. These were given away for free across Leeds before the show, and a limited number are still available for free down at Enjoy.
After a completely manic week, one very broken hard drive, and one extremely stressed photographer, the Newmarket body of work is one step closer to being completed! Shooting finished a few weeks ago, scanning the negatives on our badass Hasselblad scanner finished this morning, so now it is just the simple task of editing, sequencing, finalising the design of the book and sending to the printers!
My living room has now been covered in prints ready to sequence, being the only room in the house that has a big enough floor to lay them all out.
Me and my graphic designer Arthur Carey have been working on some pretty exciting ideas for the design of the book, more of which I will be able to reveal in a few weeks, when I will also be taking pre-orders for the limited run of 20 copies in the edition.
