BOP Bristol 19
Photobook Festival

BOP Bristol 19 is a brand new photobook festival hosted by Martin Parr Foundation and The Royal Photographic Society, which will be based at Paintworks, Bristol. It brings together a diverse range of photobook publishers from the UK and Europe and is supported by a programme of talks over the two days.

BOP Bristol 19 will provide an opportunity for photographers and collectors to seek out new books directly from publishers and artists, secure recently published and established titles, as well as meet many of the photographers behind the books. BOP Bristol 19 includes many of the key publishers in the photobook industry, including Hoxton Mini Press, MACK and Loose Joints.

Book signings will take place throughout the festival, with the lineup available shortly.

The weekend also includes an extensive programme of talks including Stephen Gill, Mark Power, Jack Latham, Poulomi Basu, and Liz Hingley. They will discuss their work with a particular focus on recent projects. The full lineup and tickets are available here.

Entry to the book fair is free, artist talks are ticketed.
