One of our most popular events is returning this autumn, this time with a brand new hybrid format!
Enjoy a feast of international publishers, book stalls, talks, book launches, and more – both online and in-person. This year, our theme is HOME, with events talking about migration, integration, identity, home and displacement.
A big part of the fair is supporting self-published photobooks by photographers and artists. We are excited to have a great selection of self-published and handmade photobooks and zines to sell on a dedicated self-publisher stall, both at the gallery and through our online bookshop.
Roll up! Roll up! Tombola
Back by popular demand we will have our fabulous tombola with lots of photo goodies to be won throughout the day. All money rasied will be donated to the charity Her Yerde Sanat, helping to support the Sirkhane DARKROOM, a mobile photography project for refugee children.
Bradford Zine Fair
We are also excited to be teamed up with the Bradford Zine Fair this year with stalls and events for you to explore at our neighbours City Library.
Please note: all of the talks will be taking place online, but they will also be screened live to a limited in-person audience at Impressions Gallery. Booking for both the online and in-person audience is essential. Book stalls and tombola will be in person at the gallery.
