Photobooks: The Moose Book Launch
Building on the success of the 2013 book launch event at Shoreditch Town Hall, the Moose 2017 photo book launch will take place in the atmospheric surroundings of St John on Bethnal Green, in the East End. This beautiful church, which is situated a few metres away from Bethnal Green Underground station, was designed by John Soane and has become a home for artists and charities in its extensive crypt as well as a fully functioning Anglican church.
Fifteen authors of photo books will be invited to have a book table, to present their publication and to engage in conversation with visitors about their photobooks and to sell signed copies. The Journal of Photography&Culture will also be present.
Authors include Paul Reas, Anna Fox, Sara Davidmann, Val Williams, Corinne Silva, Johanna Love, Edmund Clark, Sophy Rickett, Bettina von Zwehl, Robin Christian (Makina Books), Lewis Bush, Jason Wilde, Tom Hunter and more.
There will be competitions, including the Fox-Williams Prize for Knowledge of Photographs (awarded for the first time since 1995), and prizes including ‘Best Cake Baked from a Kit’ with a celebrity judge.
Free and open to all.
