I had the great role of photographing the opening weekend along with others at Format 2017.
The whole atmosphere at Format was great and I would highly recommend it. It was a chance to see a great range of quality work and in a lot of cases speak to the artists themselves.
The Format festival is still ongoing so I would recommend a visit.
I spent some time around the book market looking at the range of photobooks that utilize such a wide variety of paper/binding/printing techniques. There were hand sewn books, perfect bound books, and even no binding on some.
- All of these techniques opened my mind about what is possible and allowed me to see first hand the pro's and con's of each method.
