Last June MiniClick published a small print run publication of some of my work documenting Brighton Swimming Club. ‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’ centred around David Sawyers: one of the clubs more eccentric characters. The first print run sold out super fast, I was on holiday when they went on sale, so I didn’t get a chance to promote the release, soon after I was back they were sold out. I know there was a few people that were disappointed that they did not get a copy in their hands.
I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save
By Kevin Meredith
Published by MiniClick
MiniClick has started publishing small photo books focusing on one project. For those of you that don’t know MiniClick has been organising free photography talks in Brighton and further afield since 2010. I have had the pleasure of speaking at MiniClick on several occasions. So it’s with great pride that I can tell you that my work will be published along with 4 other photographers in the first set of photo books. They will launch on June the 25th at the Old Market in Hove.
A little run down of the photo books I’ve acquired, most of which I got by attending photographer’s talks and book launches which means I get to pick up rare photography books and don’t have to pay postage. Some of the books are readily available on amazon while others will be a little harder to get hold of.
If this leaves you hungry for more check out my other photo book recommendations in these blog posts: Three recently acquired photographic publications by Jim Mortram, MiniClick and Tom Groves and Three recently acquired photo books by Maciej Dakowicz, Martin Parr and Sam Hiscox
Below are the three Photographic publications I have purchased. I should buy more photographic books but rest assured when I do purchase a photo book / zine it’s always of the highest quality.
Photographer Tom Groves has been documenting the world of Subbuteo and everything that surrounds it for the past three years. His project covers Subbuteo’s fanatic fans and the Championship competitions that occur across europe. He is now putting the project into a self published book “In the Box” that he is funding throw this Kickstarter page. For £20 you can pre order one of the 1,000 limited edition copies.
The good people that used to run the North Lane photography gallery have not been resting on their laurels since they gave up there gallery. Last Christmas they launched The Brighton Photography Book made up of pictures from the last ten years of the brighton calendar. Now they have set up a pop up exhibition in the old Virgin Maga store in Brighton’s Churchill Shopping centre.
After finishing my 2nd book on the 24th of March 2010 work started on Toy Cameras less than a month later. Toy Cameras was then finished in 4 months, just after I had the book launches for Photo Op! Because most toy cameras require good lighting conditions for shooting I shot most of the photos for the book in Sunny Barcelona and California (it’s a hard life). I had not used some of the cameras in the book before, so to make sure they there where the best examples of what the cameras can do in the book, there are photos from 42 other contributors. The book serves as a guide to what different toy cameras are good for are what there particular quirks are. You can read more about what the book is about here.
