Talk: Photographer-led publishing @ NEPN Photo-Book Market

Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art/Level 1

In conversation with Adam Geary (Aglu books) and Sarah Amy Fishlock (Goose Flesh), this discussion will explore the potential and pitfalls of photographer-led publishing.

Sarah Amy Fishlock is a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art and works mainly in the field of documentary photography. Sarah has a strong interest in the printed publication as a method for disseminating photographic work and has produced two zines, Citizens and A Citizens’ Archive, documenting her time as Artist in Residence at the Citizens Theatre. She is also editor of Glasgow-based photography zine Goose Flesh, which aims to showcase the work of Glasgow-based or -linked photographers in a compact, accessible, affordable form. The fourth volume of Goose Flesh was released in October 2014, and was launched at Landskrona  Fotofestival in Sweden. Sarah also recently collaborated with the Jill Todd Photographic Award to produce a one-off edition of Goose Flesh featuring entrants and winners of this year’s award.

Adam Geary is a Derby photography graduate of the late 80’s and has exhibited and published widely. He currently combines work in the arts and cultural sector alongside 
his photography interests in Ayrshire, Scotland. He is founder of Aglu books, an independent photographer-led initiative that looks to fill a gap in publishing new photographic work.
