A Bristol-based festival dedicated to photobooks

“There is simply one thing so tangible concerning the photobook,” says Martin Parr, a well known photobook aficionado. Indeed, Parr and his basis (the Martin Parr Foundation) produce the Books on Photography festival (BOP) with the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) yearly.

“It’s a very powerful time for pictures,” Parr continues. The ultimate 18 months have dramatically affected the medium and the ones concerned within the photographic group. The 2021 iteration of BOP, which runs from 22 to 24 October, displays this, exploring the converting photographic panorama with over 50 publishers. Highlights come with photographer Giya Makondo-Wills’ communicate on race and decolonisation within the photobook and documentary photographer Nick Hedges dialogue with Parr at the affect of photographic historical past at the provide day.
