We Make The Path By Walking

GRAIN host a PHOTOGRAPHERS TALK by acclaimed photographer Paul Gaffney.

Time: 6pm – 7.30pm

Venue: Meeting Room 104, Library of Birmingham

Paul Gaffney is an Irish artist who is currently undertaking a practice-based PhD in photography at the University of Ulster in Belfast. Gaffney’s research is focused on developing a more intuitive approach to photographing nature and creating an immersive experience for the viewer. His upcoming talk will focus on his evolving practice and approach to book making, and he will also discuss some new photobook projects, and a recent co-commission with GRAIN, Library of Birmingham, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and Stan’s Cafe.

His self-published book, We Make the Path by Walking, which explored the notion of walking as a form of meditation and personal transformation, was nominated for the Photobook Award 2013 at the 6th International Photobook Festival in Kassel, Germany and shortlisted for the European Publishers Award for Photography 2013, and was also selected for several ‘Best Photobooks of 2013’ lists, including Photo-Eye and The British Journal of Photography.

The project has been presented as solo exhibitions at Oliver Sears Gallery (Dublin), Flowers Gallery (London), Ffotogallery (Cardiff) and PhotoIreland Festival 2013 (Dublin), and in several group shows in the United States, UK, South Africa, Ireland and Italy.

Tickets are £3 and available through Eventbrite, click here to book.
