Harry Hardie of Here Press – amazing book workshop today

This morning I was lucky enough to attend a lecture by Harry Hardie of Here Press where he spoke about his journey that lead him from a degree in sculpture to picture editing at The Times, directing a London gallery and finally to the creation of Here Press publishers.

Harry compares Here Press to an independent record label – he’s not interested in The Greatest Hits album and stresses that the books that Here Press publish are the finished work of art.

Not only are the projects he takes on incredibly interesting but his books are beautifully made and lovely to handle. Each book is unique but they are always simple in design, every element somehow complimenting the idea behind the work inside.

I personally recommend looking into these projects that have been published by Here Press:

2041 – anonymous

Control Order House – Edmund Clark

Occupied Spaces – Ben Roberts 

ONO – Natasha Caruana 

I can’t stress how interesting these projects are. Here Press publishes work that challenges politics and raises important questions through the diverse medium of photography. Pretty perfect if you ask me.
