Perimeter Talks | Self-publishing

Perimeter is thrilled to continue its programming initiative Perimeter Talks in 2018. Taking place approximately once a month, the series features lectures, panel discussions and more casual in-conversations with publishers, artists, curators, designers, writers and editors. The talks explore and address various themes and issues relating to contemporary photographic, art and design publishing – helping demystify, challenge and offer insight into publishing as a medium and a practice.

Over the past ten years, self-publishing has experienced something of a renaissance. Small DIY publishing imprints have sprung up all over the world. There is now an ease of use in digital technology that the world has never seen before, and photographers are using this printing technology to distribute their work. With it’s technologically indifferent veneer, it seems photography is the ideal medium for contemporary publishing practice. For the second instalment of Perimeter Talks in 2018, a panel of Melbourne-based small press publishers and photographers — including Lloyd Stubber, Rohan Hutchinson, Felix Wilson, Ying Ang, Kate Golding and Luke Van Aurich — will discuss the how and why of their practice.
