Featuring work by: Adam Murray & Robert Parkinson, Alastair Levy, Alec Soth, Alex Mctigue, Alexander Binder, Alexandra Klein, Asa Johannesson, Asher Penn, Aubrey Mayer, Charlotte Dumas, David Schoerner and more!
Book Signings: Throughout the weekend visitors will be able to meet the authors/ publishers of the books in The Photographers’ Gallery Café and Bookshop and have them sign their book.
A selection of the books will be availble for sale in The Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop. Come and get your piece of happiness.
