Various news

Last night I saw a copy of my book Fault Lines/Turkey/East/West for the first time. I'm really very happy with the whole production and would like to thank everyone involved. The English version of the book will be released on the 29th May and should be easy to find. In the future I will post up some links to the book but for now it can be pre ordered at Amazon UK and Photo-eye in the US. They are displaying the wrong cover and page details but it will be the correct book.

Applications for the workshops at ISSP in Latvia this summer are closing on Monday. Already they have over twice as many applications than places.

I will be exhibiting Fault Lines at the Side Gallery in Newcastle from May 22nd and I will also be making a presentation on the same day, more details to follow.

Yesterday Fault Lines was presented at Lodz fotofestiwal in an evening of curated slideshows.
The work was presented by Tina Schelhorn


Even those who deal with photography on a daily basis find it hard to choose valuable works from the flood of ‘photo production’ of recent years. It is really difficult to follow all the novelties, changes, interesting names and ideas. Curators’ presentations during evening slide shows are an attempt to update our knowledge on what is happening in European photography.
We started the series of presentations during the last year’s Fotofestiwal. Different curators brought their different points of view and interests, which resulted in a fascinating photo mix, surprising and fresh, sometimes controversial. The series is meant to present interesting personalities of contemporary photography – curator and, most importantly, artists.
Slideshows partner – University of Lodz.
7th of May (Friday), 21:00 – 1 Moniuszki St.
