The Social: Zines & Small Publications

6:30pm, Wed 29 Mar 2023

A free, theme-based advice and networking session for photographers

This event is part of our Past Programme

Deliberately informal, The Social pairs a photographer with another photography professional who each offer tips on a theme. Participants are encouraged to join in, based on their own experiences of the evening’s theme.

We'll hear a short talk by each invited speaker and have plenty of time to discuss the theme as a group.

The theme for this session is making and publishing zines and other small self-published books with Pippa Healy and Dilly Thain.

Speakers' Biogs

Pippa Healy is a photographic artist based in London. Her practice is concerned with themes of loss, longing, violence and grief. She works with both analogue and digital photography as well as printmaking techniques such as screen-printing and photopolymer. Healy's handmade 'Zines', which are often raw, abject and diaristic in style, are central to her practice. She was the recipient of the 2020 Bainbridge Studio Prize and was a finalist for The Signature Art Prize 2021. She is currently studying for a Doctorate in Fine Art from the University of East London where she also lectures on the BA Photography course. Her work has been exhibited internationally and her zines are part of the Tate Gallery, Martin Parr Foundation and MEP, Paris collections.

Dilly Thain is a photographer and Specialist Sales Assistant in The Photographers' Gallery's bookshop, with responsibility for running the zine/small press section. She is also Art Director of ADRIFT art collective, a digital publication dedicated to emerging photographers.
