The internationally respected C/O Berlin is now stocking my zines in its bookshop in Berlin.

“Even in the digital age, books are still the consummate medium for conveying the fascination of photography in all its variety. Today more than ever, the format of the book, the touch and feel of the paper, the accompanying text and typography, the selection of images and the layout make these analog data carriers objects of desire—whether they’re produced for the mass market or as exclusive collector’s editions. Since its founding, C/O Berlin has published numerous books on major exhibitions of artists such as Lore Krüger, Peter Lindbergh, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Larry Clark, as well as one book accompanying each of the exhibitions in the Talents series.” – C/O Berlin.

The is history of the C/O Berlin building is worth checking out.

“The pictures here highlight how artists have brought the creative activism of subversive graffiti into (or onto) these commercialised infrastructures of urban mobility. As trucks and vans move consumable goods of the elite urban economy around the city, they carry with them the viruses of activism. Like the New York subway trains in the 1970s, the graffiti trucks of Paris are a mobile gallery of graffiti and its affront to the sterile spaces of urban commodity movement.” – Dr. Oli Mould.

The Graffiti Trucks of Paris is available to buy online and is also stocked by Claire de Rouen Books, Foyles, Flotsam Books in Tokyo and The Photographers’ Gallery.

The year kicked off with Millbank and that Van being included in the limited edition Archive One box set from Café Royal Books.

In the spring a talk at Tate Britain on my zines, self-publishing and photobooks. Huck Magazine interviewed me on my “two decades of documenting youth culture” and I was invited to Cardiff to talk about my work at the University of South Wales and Ffoton Talks. Then Offprint London at Tate Modern.

Vandals and the City was launched in the summer at Urban Spree in Berlin with an exhibition and talk. The talk was chaired by the Berlin based academic Prof. Sandra Bartoli and founding member of Büro für Konstruktivismus.

Vandals and the City was featured in the Guardian and Huck Magazine.

The London launch of Vandals and the City was held in August at The Photographers’ Gallery along with a slideshow installation and Tate Britain acquired a copy for its library collection.

In October a talk at London South Bank University plus an exhibition of Vandals and the City in the university’s photobook project space. The year ended with the second of edition of Vandals and the City being published after the first edition sold out.

Huge thanks to everyone who bought a zine, came to a talk or exhibition. I would also like to wish you all the best for 2017.
