Show+Tell is an informal get together for visual artists and photographers to share their photobooks in a friendly, open environment, allowing them to receive practical feedback with the aim of realising their books’ full potential. Artists are encouraged to bring along their photobooks, whether in the early stages of a maquette or dummy, or as a finished publication, with the view of using these books to stimulate group discussion amongst participating artists. Surrounded by a wealth of publications from all corners of the globe, and drawing on Read That Image’s collective knowledge, this promises to be an event full of inspiration and revelation.
