The Creation of the Photobook with Matt Writtle and Ben Smith – Free talk on Sunday 5 November 11:00am – 1:00pm at A-side B-side Gallery, London – Exhibition on from 2 to 7 November. RSVP to talk to  Caitlin@artistatnone.com

Photographer Matt Writtle invites fellow Photographer, A Small Voice podcast host and writer Ben Smith down to his exhibition Sunday: A Portrait of 21st Century England to discuss the practicalities of creating, funding, publishing and launching your own photobook and exhibition. Matt will reveal the finer intricacies of how his recent project, which has spanned 10 years of work came to fruition.

Sunday explores the huge cultural shift away from traditional churchgoing and what this represents of wider cultural changes. For centuries Sunday has been known throughout Christian England as a day of worship, contemplation and reflection; the one true day of leisure. However, with weekly church attendance figures now falling below one million for the first time Matt asks the question what are people doing instead? And how does this reflect wider cultural shifts of our time.
