Besides Press is a new non-profit publishing company that celebrates a particular approach to photography: projects that are created with an impulsive curiosity, without deliberation, and often without an audience in mind. This includes spontaneous side projects, playful collaborations, and offbeat experiments.
This event serves as the launch of Besides press and our first three books. Come down and join us for an exhibition and book / print sale at Liberty House, Bristol, on 1st October, from 7pm till late.
Discussions, poetry readings, and talks will then take place on 2nd October from 12.30pm. The talks will be a ticketed but FREE event, more information coming soon. The exhibition will be open from 10 - 5 on 2nd October, except for the duration of the talks.
During our 2 day launch event, we will have limited-time offers of books, poster prints, merch, and more. The exhibition is free to enter and all are welcome.
Besides Press is generously supported by Vino Sangre Screen Printing.
