We’re excited to open a series of regular online meetups by The Phooks with this first one which will have a form of a photobook presentation and an open, but moderated discussion.
According to our survey in the Facebook group, members prefer to run such events on Thursdays at 8pm UK time which we find the most convenient option for our global community.
Within the the first meetup we will talk to two authors. They show us their books, we aks questions and disccus alltogether.
Patrick Murphy will present Reserved Mr. Memory, a book made of photographs covering a period of 50 years
Patrick has never been a professional photographer, and photography wasn’t his only occupation, which didn’t stop him from being published and exhibited in Europe and the U.S.
He lives in Lithuania, spent about twenty years in the USSR and post-Soviet Russia, and traveled a lot, but his recently published and only photo book so far is dedicated to the South of the U.S.
“Reserved. Mr. Memory” represents the photographs Patrick made over a period of fifty years. In the book he writes: “the oldest of them when I was barely a teenager, the most recent, less than two years ago”. A truly lifetime personal documentary project.
Huw Alden Davies tells about the recently published Scaffold to the Moon — an intimate documentary project built around his family
Huw Alden Davies is a widely published and exhibited, awarded documentary photographer, educator, lecturer and program director of BA Photography at Carmarthen School of Art. Along with his professional career Huw finds his passion in documenting the life of local communities and his own family life.
Published by iPigenon, a recently founded indie-publishing house by Huw and Daniel Stavely, the book continues (it is how it looks for us now — we’ll ask from at the meetup) his previous publication — a self-published zine Prince.
Scaffold to the Moon photobook is a dramatic and often humorous study of the artist’s father, a bi-product of a generation, and his devoted mother, central characters to his beloved Tumble.
“When people open the cover of Scaffold to the Moon, I want them to lose themselves for a moment; I want them to laugh, think, reminisce; remember, that innocence, hope and optimism they once felt, and I want them to remember that special someone, daft as a brush, who reminds us that sometimes it’s ok to let go. To not care, to be silly, be free, have fun. The world is a big place, a serious one with many big problems. Just remember, if we were standing on the moon, we would quickly be reminded how little we really are”Huw Alden Davies
