Printed Matters: A Photobook Symposium

Back in February this year, Ffotogallery in partnership with Chapter and Third Floor Gallery organised a weekend of publishing related events to coincide with BAF6. This included a Book Launch of Ffotogallery’s recent title, Inside the View by Helen Sear and Printed Matters: A Photobook Symposium. The symposium, chaired by Diane Smyth from the British Journal of Photography, was a huge success, with speakers travelling to Cardiff from as far as Berlin, to raise significant discussion and debate surrounding the triumphs and tribulations of photobook production from a wide range of perspectives, from that of the artist working with an independent publisher, a self-publishing photographic artist to those of a photobook collector, book reviewer, designer and producer.

Here are some shots of how the sessions unfolded…
