This weekend sees our friends at Miniclick staging an event in Brighton which is aimed at showcasing the very best of contemporary photography publications – and Document Scotland’s acclaimed DOC002 newspaper will be on sale at the event.
The one-day event, part of the Brighton Photo Fringe is billed as the first-ever Miniclick Paper Fair and takes place at the city’s Phoenix Gallery from 11am-5pm. Entry is free and there will be a panel discussion at 3pm, and in keeping with all Miniclick events, there will be opportunities to drink and socialise at the conclusion of the event.
During the day, visitors will be asked to nominate their “favourite page” the best of which will be collated into a specially-produced ‘zine at the end of the event. Miniclick’s Jim Stephenson explained, “We’ll be collating a limited ‘zine that’ll grow through the day and will be bound toward the end of the day in a live demonstration before being sold. In keeping with the day’s celebration of the printed page, we’re asking you to bring along your favourite piece of paper. It could be a poster, album cover, magazine layout, photograph, newspaper headline, origami or anything. Please bring it along and we’ll take a copy of it and add it to the evolving ‘zine (before giving the original back to you).”
So if you are at a loose end on England’s south coast this Saturday, you could do a lot worse than nipping over to Brighton and supporting what should be a great event. More details available from Miniclick.
