Paul Reas
Artist talk and book signing

21.02.19

Paul Reas will discuss his personal, editorial and commercial work referencing Fables of Faubus, a new retrospective published by GOST in December 2018.

Paul Reas is a part of the pioneering generation of ‘New Colour’ documentary photographers, which included Paul Graham, Martin Parr and Anna Fox. Their work explored British class and culture in the 1980s and ’90s. Strongly influenced by his working-class upbringing in Bradford, Reas used humour and sharp observation to comment on a new corporate and commercial world epitomised by heritage industry sites, retail parks, and supermarkets.

Followed by a Q&A and photobook signing.
