Visible Economies book launch
Immo Klink - Chanel, Mayday at Mayfair Series

Immo Klink Chanel, Mayday at Mayfair Series (2002)

The official launch of Visible Economies takes place this Wednesday 31st October, as part of the symposium of the same name.

“Photography developed with the rise of major cities during the last great period of Globalization. Visible Economies explores a selection of photographic works that involve established and emerging forms of urban landscape, documentary, and artists’ moving image as creative representational strategies. The aim of this symposium and accompanying publication is to propose a series of observations and conversations about the visibility of cities and economies. With a shifting focus between political and poetic depictions of public urban environments, this symposium offers suggestions as much as descriptions of how we congregate within and use such spaces as modern citizens.”

The fifth Brighton Photo Biennial starts today and runs until the 4th of November. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Agents of Change: Photography and the Politics of Space’.

“How is space constructed, controlled and contested? How is photography implicated in these processes and what are the tensions and possibilities involved in this dialogue?”

The Biennial is presented and curated by Photoworks, and features free exhibitions, new commissions, events and interventions, at a host of established and more unusual venues, bringing international and emerging photographers to the city.

New photography book: Towpath by Paul Walsh
Towpath by Paul Walsh - Photography book

Format Editions are pleased to announce our latest book, Towpath, by photographer Paul Walsh.

“The Basingstoke Canal and Wey Navigation runs for almost 60 miles throughout the regions of Hampshire and Surrey. When built in the 18th century, it was intended to provide a transport route to and from London via the Thames, however the success of the local railway led to its commercial failure.

“A series of owners struggled to make the canal a financial success and the dream of extending the waterway to the south coast never materialized. After just forty years it began to fall into disrepair and has been on decline ever since. Although in recent years effort has been made to reconstruct the canal as a recreational space, parts of it still lie derelict and large sections have been bulldozed over for the construction of the motorway.”

Towpath by Paul Walsh - Photobook

“In this series, I have mapped my walking journey along the canal from the perspective of the towpath, where canal men and draught horses once walked. I attempted to capture the change in scenery, as the man-made structure of the canal becomes lost to its surrounding wilderness. My empirical journey draws attention to the history and memory inherent in the landscape, whilst reflecting on the canal’s melancholy and untameable beauty.

“Towpath aims to challenge our classical notion of the English picturesque landscape by offering a portrait of a failed industrial space in the process of redefining itself. It encourages us to consider the consequence of man’s impact on the landscape, whilst drawing attention to the canal’s volatile condition and uncertain future.”
