Stills Gallery, 23 Cockburn St, Edinburgh EH1 1BP
First published in 1982, Paul Hill’s Approaching Photography has had a major impact on the world of photography and photographic education. It was re-issued in a substantially revised edition in 2004 and continues to be an essential item on the reading lists of photographic students.
For this special event, signed copies of the second edition will be available at the reduced price of £9.95 (publisher’s price £24.95). Paul Hill will give a brief history of Approaching Photography itself and discuss its impact on photography and photographic education. He will also refer to the major revolutions that have continued to reshape photography even since the second edition was published and the ways in which his own approach to photography has evolved in recent years.

First of all, apologies to all customers who'd been trying to access our website earlier this week. Our ISP let us down badly but we're hoping now for a period of normality.
Our latest newsletter out today includes new titles by Peter van Agtmael, Graham McIndoe, Nicolo Degiorgis, Andre Principe & Marco Martins, Jose Pedro Cortes (all the above are signed), Michael Schmidt, Miron Zownir, Oliver Sieber and Hans van der Meer - that wonderful book of football landscapes in a new edition.
We have a great range of newly received or about-to-be received signed copies. They include Max Pinckers' Will They Sing Like Raindrops?, Lucas Foglia's Frontcountry, Iain Sarjeant's The Pool, Paul Kenny's Seaworks, Julian Calverley's iphone Only, Stephen Gill's Talking to Ants and Best Before End, Thilde Jensen's The Canaries, Phaidon's new edition of the Martin Parr Retrospective and several titles by Mark Mattock.
Our latest newsletter came out today and features new and forthcoming titles by Paul Kenny (signed), Ed van der Elsken, Victoria Sambunaris (signed), Berris Connolly, Onorato & Krebs, and Todd Hido.
Two best-selling Dewi Lewis titles have just been reprinted. Wilder Mann (exploring the tradition of the Wild Man in European rituals and celebrations) has just gone into a remarkable fourth printing - its third printing was sold out in a few months last year.
And Jon Tonks' excellent Empire, documenting various island outposts of the British 'empire', is also available again in a new printing.
We've had more problems with our website this week so apologies once again to any customers who've tried to get on our site and found it running very slowly or not available at all. It seems like we've got it sorted out now but please let us know if you are having any difficulty using the site.
A new book in the Photo Poche series will give fans of Ragnar Axelsson's work the chance to have a 'best of' at an affordable price. What little text there is is in French but, as only a very small number of Photo Poches titles ever appear in English, this little book would be a very worthwhile purchase.
We're very sorry about the website being unavailable over the weekend. This was not planned and was the responsibility of a certain service provider who will remain nameless this time, but perhaps not next!
Our latest newsletter came out today and features new and forthcoming titles by Andy Sewell, Stephen Gill, Zed Nelson, Dan Dubowitz, Iain Sarjeant and Julian Calverley. All these books will be signed.
We've just had word from writer Ken Worpole that The New English Landscape, his excellent collaboration with photographer James Orton, is about to be reprinted.
And I'm looking forward to Andy Sewell's follow up to The Heath (his fine book on Hampstead Heath). Something Like a Nest explores contemporary landscapes and how they relate to "pastoral ideas and conventions". The Heath went out of print very quickly so don't hesitate if you're interested in Andy Sewell's work. We will have signed copies.
Both these items would be an essential part of the library of anyone interested in contemporary English landscapes.
One of our most loyal customers, Allan Bovill has just had his photographs of Glasgow Steamies published by Café Royal Books. Buy directly from them.
Former Beyond Words staff member Alicia Bruce is a major contributor to the Industries exhibition running at Street Level, Glasgow till 22 June.
One of my favourite photographers Peter Bialobrzeski will have Cairo Diary published by Velvet Cell in September. If you like his work, I would encourage you to order now as it’s only in an edition of 1000.
We’re just getting news of a forthcoming Nazraeli Press limited edition series called NZ Library. They will be published in groupings of six titles at a time and the first photographers to be featured will be Bevan Davies, John Divola, Steve Kahn, Idris Khan, Daido Moriyama and John Scott. Each title is limited to 350 numbered and signed copies; each is bound in silk cloth and individually slipased and is of a uniform height of 12*15 inches. Currently no information is available online but, if you are interested and would like more details, please email email@example.com and I will email you the advance information.
