Its authors include a number of the leading British and international photographers such as William Klein, Martin Parr, Simon Norfolk, Fay Godwin, Tom Wood, Sergio Larrain, Frank Horvat, John Blakemore, Paolo Pelegrin and Bruce Gilden. The aim of the company is to bring to the attention of a wider public, accessible but challenging contemporary photography by both established and lesser known practitioners.

2 – 3pm – Lisa Barnard presents her new book Hyenas of the Battlefield, Machine in the Garden from GOST.
Hyenas of the Battlefield, Machines in the Garden, is a study into the ‘unholy alliance’ between the military, the entertainment industry and technology, and their coalescence around modern-day warfare. As Fredric Jameson famously observed in 1991 “the underside of culture is blood, torture, death and horror.”

A panel discussion to celebrate all things print, chaired by Harry Hardie of HERE and featuring Ditto Press, Fourteen-Nineteen and Cafe Royal Books.

Sunday 19 October:

12 – 1pm – Craig Atkinson of Cafe Royal Books discusses collaborating and working with archives.
