I am going to be taking part in the London Art Book Fair at the @whitechapelgallery , 6-9 September. I’ll be being several projects I’ve posted on Instagram and selling copies of ‘Losing Ground’ as well as the Photobook dummy for ‘if you can piss...’. These images are the front cover and a sample of spreads. a unique document of my life working on building sites in London.
BOOK CLUB: Oh Man by @lise_sarfati This book was shot entirely in downtown Los Angeles within blocks of where we are located. The people and locations are all very familiar to us but without knowing this it would seem that these scenes could be taking place in almost any major city. The photographs are populated by single men walking through deserted streets on a mission only they know and we can only guess. Available in the shop and online through our website now.

Masaki Yamamoto - Guts (Zen Photo Gallery, 2017) This book took courage, an unashamed and uncompromising book full of integrity. A reminder of how photography can be in a world where style is more important than soul. Doesn't hurt that it's beautifully produced and printed too #photobookjousting#makesomethingreal

Disappearance by Tomasz Laczny is now available at the #Tipibookshop.
The feeling of loss and longing are the main theme of autobiographical photobook of Tomasz Laczny who based his story on his own experiences while gradually losing the contact with his children after divorce. Tomasz Laczny guides the viewer through a dream world built of autobiographical and fictional elements.
Composed with elements of joy, sadness, humor, melancholy and sometimes horror with expressionistic twist the author creates the world where questioned are issues of identity belonging and connections.
