Afternoon Tea with Nick Waplington
Organized by 10x10 Photobooks

Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 3-4pm
ICP-Bard Studios

In 1991 Nick Waplington released the classic photobook Living Room, a project chronicling the lives of two working class families on the Broxtowe Estate, Nottingham (UK) where he had been visiting his grandfather since 1984. This exceptionally insightful work launched Nick into the photo world and he received much critical acclaim, including the ICP Infinity Award for Best Young Photographer in 1993. Now in 2015 Nick has chosen to revisit this material publishing a small edition with Little Big Man entitled “Living Room Work Prints” based upon the contents of a box of work prints used for editing the book in 1989/90. If you would like to find out more about this meaningful work then please join us for an artist talk with the man himself. The book will be available for purchase afterwards.

10x10 Photobooks Salon NYC

Wednesday, September 23, 2015
(By Invitation Only. RSVP Required.)

Join us for a 10x10 Photobooks salon to wind down after the NY Art Book Fair and spend an evening in the company of three Dutch photographers. Mariken Wessels, Rein Jelle Terpstra, and Stephan Keppel will talk about their projects and present their photobooks.

Mariken Wessels’ latest artist’s book Taking Off. Henry my Neighbor is a real picture story about failed marriage, sexual frustration and voyeurism. She started redacting the work and arranging it into an artist's book, for which the audience will be invited to a journey into Henry’s life as well as his twisted vision of Martha – his former spouse and muse.

For the creation of Entre EntreeStephan Keppel spent one year in Paris and its suburban ring road (the Boulevard Périphérique). By reproducing the endless variations of the city’s surfaces – with his set of printers, cameras and partly found paper-stocks – With Entre Entree Keppel visually narrates a fragmented and claustrophobic urban landscape, manifested through numerous black-and-white images of concrete facades, vegetation and the textures, shapes and materials that together form the face of the city.

Rein Jelle Terpstra'Retracing is part of a long-term research project into perception, memory, photography and the possibility of imagelessness. Terpstra collaborated with people who are losing their sight. He asked them about their most valuable visual memory and photographed these scenes on Kodachrome diapositive, a type of film that was discontinued in 2009.

10x10 Photobooks Salons offer a space to get together with photobook publishers, authors and collectors in an informal atmosphere over a glass of wine or beer. Photobooks will be available for browsing and purchase.

 

Space is limited to 25 people.
RSVP required at 10by10photobooks@gmail.com  
Address will be given upon successful RSVP. (This time we are meeting in Brooklyn!)
