Exploring the possibilities of photobooks as objects, sculptures and installations.

Gareth Phillips

Photographer Gareth Phillips will be talking about his photobook making practice with regards to his experimentations with the amplification of depicted subject matter using time, space and materiality.

His project which features in The World Without Us is a photobook sculpture depicting the fictional story of a group of humans escaping climate catastrophe, who seek asylum on an alien Eden called Caligo. It is an imagined planet, untouched by humans that is verdant, lush and wild. It is an asylum humans might seek after their own climate catastrophe.
