On Friday 6 May 2016 I will be giving a talk at Tate Britain on my zines that the Tate hold in its library collection.

The zines will be on display in the reading rooms and Holly Callaghan from Tate Britain will give a short presentation about the photobook and zine collection and introduce me and my work.

I will talk about my zines, self-publishing and the crossover between photobooks and zines.

After the talk attendees will have around 40 minute to look round the display and ask Holly and I questions.  

You can book tickets from Tate Britain.
