Paper trail to Brighton


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.

Document Scotland DOC002 newspaper, 'Seeing Ourselves', Friday 31st May 2013.

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.

12.11.13 – Document Scotland presents…. Portrait Salon

What is a portrait? A person, a look, a gaze, a moment, a superficial facade or a glimpse of raw honesty, something beautiful, something shocking. It can be all these things and more….

Document Scotland are delighted to team up with our good friends Portrait Salon to host the launch event of Portrait Salon 2013 at the ever welcoming Stills Gallery in Edinburgh on Tuesday the 12th November from 6:30pm. Please join us for an entertaining evening of photography, beers and good conversation. At some point during the evening there will also be a live link up to the several simultaneous Portrait Salon events being held all over the UK in London, Leeds, Brighton and Cardiff.

Document Scotland presents... Portrait Salon image

Portrait Salon is a form of Salon des Refusés – an exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show – which has a long tradition as a fringe way of showcasing artists’ work that may otherwise go unseen. Devised by Carole Evans and James O Jenkins, Portrait Salon aims to show the best of the unselected entries from the annual National Portrait Gallery Photographic Portrait Prize. We figure that, out of the 6000+ rejected entries, there are excellent portraits which deserve to be seen.

This year’s panel of judges selecting the best of the rejected images were: Harry Hardie from HERE Press, photographer Abbie Trayler-Smith, and Jim Stephenson, co-founder of Miniclick Talks in Brighton. It’s bound to be a good show.

Both the Document Scotland Seeing Ourselves newspaper will be for sale as will the new Portrait Salon newspaper. Beyond Words  specialist retailer of photographic books, will also be joining us.

We’d love to see you there. Please follow this link to BOOK your place.
