The Contemporary SIG will hold their next AGM on Saturday 30th September 2017 in Manchester.  The day is planned for 10:00 to 16:30.  The AGM will run between 10:00 to 11:00.

A one day event is to be combined with the Contemporary SIG AGM.  Our first speaker is Derek Trillo and the second speaker Dewi Lewis.

Derek was the first runner up in the 2014 pilot Photobook Exhibition with ‘Identifying England’ he is a freelance photographer/curator/part time tutor at Open College of the Arts.  www.oca.ac.uk/profile/derek-trillo

Dewi Lewis, publisher and curator of photography, was a selector in the 2016 RPS International PhotoBook Exhibition.  Dewi Lewis Publishing was founded in 1994 and its authors have included leading International and International photographers

 

The focus is clearly on photobooks and there will be an opportunity for attendees to take part in a Question and Answer session on making books (Derek) and publishing books (Dewi).  Attendees are encouraged to bring a short sequence of pictures for review as to their potential for a photobook.

The event is free to all Contemporary SIG members with a small fee for non-members attending the non-AGM part of the day. The event will be in Manchester’s  Central Library, http://www.manchester.gov.uk/directory_record/87760/central_library/category/817/view_all_libraries

Members wishing to bring prints or books for review should notify Avril R Harris, avrilrharris@blueyonder.co.uk, this is to ensure we allow enough time.
