A Day of Sharing Knowledge and Experience at APHE Mid Year Gathering, the theme(s) for the day are:
“The Photobook as a teaching tool – concept, design, making and marketing”
For our APHE mid-year Gathering, we have put together talks and discussions to get us thinking and sharing photography. We are organising this jointly with Sheffield Hallam University.
The Schedule is as follows:
12:00 – Annual General Meeting over light lunch (Members only)
13:00 – Afternoon talks commence
Mimi Mollica – special guest speaker
Mimi will be speaking about his long-term project Terra Nostra. He will guide us through a selection of the work including a short multimedia piece, and provide us with first-hand insights from the idea conception through to the production of the final book.
He will also talk specifically on the crowdfunding campaign and the balance between doing everything yourself, whilst simultaneoulsy having the backing of my publisher and enjoying the support of many people, friends and colleagues.
He sees the talk as an open discussion with the audience. So as well as answering the questions after the talk, he encourages people to interrupt and engage actively during the actual presentation.
Documentary photographer Mimi Mollica has covered assignments across the world for major outlets, magazines and organisations.
Mimi researches and develops long-term personal projects, most of which have gained international recognition with awards, reviews and exhibitions. His work is featured in numerous prestigious books and magazines and is part of various permanent private and public collections such as The Museum of London and The Photographic Museum of Humanity.
Some of the most recent highlights include, The Lens Culture Portrait Award 2014, The Syngenta Award 2013, The Renaissance Photography Prize 2012 and the Observer Hodge Award 2005.

Andrew Robinson – Introduction – The Photobook and Self Publishing in Photo Education: Whilst the photobook has long played an important role in both the practice and teaching of photography recent developments have placed the bookwork center stage in contemporary practice, this talk explores the multi-layered and multi-skilled learning that photobook production promotes and considers the opportunities this presents to both teacher and learner.
James Corazzo – The Photobook Multiple: This talk will explore the idea that making a photobook is not the making of one book, but many books. It is the artist’s photobook, the publisher’s photobook, the designer’s photobook, perhaps even the editor’s photobook and the printer’s photobook. Creating a photobook is not the making of one photobook, but the making of many photobooks – the photobook multiple
Theo Simpson – Print Based Strategies and Methodologies: Theo’s talk will consider the diverse methodologies and strategies used to realise his project work in printed form along with the potential of the resulting outputs in both establishing and developing a professional arts practice.
