Opening this Thursday at TJ Boulting: Publish/Curate. Featuring some new work:
Harry Hardie and Ben Weaver of Here Press have released several original and unusual projects in documentary photography, and together with Lewis Chaplin, a photographer and also publisher of his own imprint Fourteen Nineteen, have collaborated on a new publication, the protagonist of which is the subject here of Chaplin’s 6x7 portraits taken of him within his domestic environment.
I have an assignment in the Photographer’s Playbook, edited by Jason Fulford & Gregory Halpern. Try it out:
I have been keeping quiet on the internet recently.
Here is a teaser from 2029, coming out next month with Here Press.

I will be talking about The Innernette at the Photographer’s Gallery this Thursday. It’s free, just turn up.
I am so excited to begin working on our next Fourteen-Nineteen title - Blisner, IL by Daniel Shea. Daniel is an incredible artist and also an intelligent human being, it is an honour to work with him. We have announced three pre-order options for the book, including some pretty special prints. Pre-orders are a really special way to offer your support and help, especially for more ambitious projects like this, so please take a look - and a big thank you to all of you who have pre-ordered already. In Daniel’s words…
For the past few years I’ve been working on an extensive body of work about a fictional Illinois coal town, Blisner. I’m working with London publishers fourteen-nineteen to release a hard cover monograph this fall, available in time for the NY Art Book Fair. We just launched the pre-order options!
Books are expensive and time-consuming to produce, in addition to the years spent working on the projects they contain. Pre-orders are a way of fund-raising to make the project actually happen. If you were going to buy the book anyway, please consider purchasing it now. Then you will have a nice treat in the mail in September.
'The discovery of time led to the realisation that one could lose a place forever, even if it continued to exist. The perspective of today is different. We no longer mourn ideal places, but we are losing the real places that create identity. The imaginary and the real are trading places. In non-places we dream of real places, just as our ancestors dreamed the reverse. We dream the dreams of a person who has gone away. In this reversal, every fixed places is related to an open space, and - conversely - open space is related to a place where one can actually arrive as a traveller.'
- Hans Belting, An Anthropology of Images
