the art book fair

An interesting event - all those books - all those publishers - all those trendy glasses - me too - Anthony Luvera was launching his new book of photographs - homeless people in Belfast - and you might initially think right and like we really need more photographers photographing homeless people - but this is different - all the photos are by the people themselves - of a particular place that holds some meaning or memory - look like on disposable cameras - and then working towards them creating their own portrait on 5X4 camera - authorship, artistic control and the ethics of photographing people all explored - I like it. Although a different process they remind me of the work of Michelle Sank.
