Ffotogallery, Chapter & Third Floor Gallery present: Printed Matters: Photobook Symposium Sunday 26 February 2012, 11.00am — 4.45pm Tickets: £8 Book now online: or by phone (0)29 2030 4400 This exciting one-day event focuses on all aspects of current photography publishing with a lively programme of presentations and panel discussions by a range of invited publishers, photographers, artists and other industry specialists. Confirmed speakers include Johanna Neurath (Thames & Hudson), Anna Pfab (Schilt Publishing), Matt Stuart (photographer and photobook collector), Ken Grant (photographer and academic), Zhao Renhui (artist), Seba Kurtis (artist) and more to be announced. Printed Matters will open up creative dialogue and enquiry into the industry of documentary and art photography publishing today. Topics that will be discussed include the practicalities and implications of large scale production verses the intimacy of self published work; considering the photobook as an aesthetic and fetishised object and the challenges and opportunities that organisations, presses and larger publishers are faced with in a changing technological and economic market. A screening of the documentary How To Make a Book with Steidl will conclude the event (included in ticket price). This event has been organised through a partnership between Ffotogallery, Third Floor Gallery and Chapter, as part of a wider weekend of photography and publishing events and activities in Cardiff.
