Paul Reas / Artist Talk and Book Signing
Paul Reas will discuss his personal, editorial and commercial work referencing Fables of Faubus, a new retrospective published by GOST Books in December 2018.
Paul Reas is a part of the pioneering generation of ‘New Colour’ #documentary photographers, which included Paul Graham, Martin Parr and Anna Fox. Their work explored #British class and culture in the 1980s and ’90s. Strongly influenced by his working-class upbringing in #Bradford, Reas used humour and sharp observation to comment on a new corporate and commercial world epitomised by heritage industry sites, retail parks, and supermarkets.
#PaulReas is the Course Leader of Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales.
Followed by a Q&A and #photobook signing.
