From 28 -29 October 2022 "Where are you a local?" will be at the Small Publishers Fair in London.
Where are you a local? is an experimental, collaborative publication, initiated through an open call, and produced and developed by Nigel Walker, Nuria Castro, Liz King, Jack Matts, Leah Band, Noémi, Julia Neal, Emma Lambert and myself.
Being local is entangled with our sense of place. Yet, it is also where the nuances and complexity of daily life are found and replayed, and where rituals and relationships are formed.
Instead of asking where are you from, we asked where are you a local?
Conceived with the intention to explore the potential of the photobook as a social object, collaboration has been central to both the making and making public of the publication.
We invite you to read, unfold, curate, reassemble, and contribute.
It was such a pleasure to work on this exciting collaborative project which discusses themes of place, home, and belongings.
