“My practice is concerned primarily with photography and its unique relationship with books. Photographic work naturally lends itself to the book form perhaps more than any other. My work explores aspects of human experience particularly within the boundaries of everyday existence, taking an explicit look at the overlooked areas of ordinary life. My current research is concerned with how photography is perceived through the book or ‘zine’, how sequencing influences the reading of photographs, and how the experience of a book is altogether and intimate one.

For the fair, I will be collaborating with other artists involved in various Book Apothecary projects. ” Joshua  Cobbin & Off  Topic Collective

“Secret childhood dens and places of the imagination give inspiration to my work. Making prints and books using paper is my passion.

Screenprint and lithography are my favoured methods of image making and these are usually produced from combinations of mark making and photographic sources with references to works of children’s literature.

I work from my studio in Cullercoats and from Northern Print.” Cindy Robinson-Begg
