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.
MiniClick asked if they could publish some of my work documenting Brighton swimming club from over the past 10 years. I have so much material that it was quite tricky to narrow down what to include as the publications are going to be quite small. MiniClick sensibly decided to edit the book around Dave Sawyers, one of the clubs most photogenic members in my opinion. The book will also include images from Brighton Swimming Club’s archive which dates back 154 years, this archive is where the title of my book came from ‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’. The book will also include quite a few previously unseen images from my archive.
At the launch event there will be talks from the other photographers who are having their work published, these include: Jack Latham, Jean-Luc Brouard, Kristina Sälgvik and Ondra Loup. Unfortunately I’m on holiday on June 25th so won’t be present to talk about my project. I can tell you it will be a great series of talks so don’t miss it, I have seen some of the other photographers talk about their work and they are all great speakers with fascinating work. The books will be available to purchase on the night.
