As part of our 2011 Offsite Programme, influential photographer Anders Petersen is currently working in London's Soho for several weeks, to create a very personal portrait of one of the city’s most vibrant areas.

Immersing himself in local life, Petersen is using local bars, cafes, homes and hotels as a backdrop for his photographic practice. At this half-way point in the project, Petersen is speaking to Stefanie Braun, Senior Curator at The Photographers' Gallery, about his working processes, previous projects and his experience of photographing in London.

The Social: Self-Publishing


Monday 27 June 18.30 - 21.00


Barrio Central, Poland Street, London, W1F 8PS

Self publishing your own photo book has become a popular way of keeping creative control of how your work is seen. This evening we will ask how to get the best out of self-publishing websites, when it is better to go it alone, and when it is worth holding out for a publishing deal...

The Social is a monthly bar-night organised with The British Journal of Photography.

Free, no booking
