Ken Flaherty of Doomed Gallery: Ken is founder and curator of this photography and visual art exhibition space based in Dalston, London. As part of the Doomed Gallery annual programme Doomed have hosted The London Pinhole Festival, London Photomonth and Zine Workshops. In 2014 Doomed started an independent publishing house supporting artists, photographers, self-publishers and the zine community.

Matt Martin of Photocopy Club: Photocopying is one of the cheapest ways to get photography printed, and at the photocopy club exhibitions feature photocopied photography from image makers around the world. Their aim is to get photography off the Internet and get printed matter back into the hands of the public. DIY culture and a democratic process available to everyone.

The IZMs Project: Take plenty of punk work ethic, mix it with a dash of Provoke, remove all ego then finally strain off any left over bullshit and pretence - that is the IZMs project. A zine, or maybe not - you decide."

 

LIPs Talk events are being held in partnership with the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University. They are informal and social, and open to LIP members and non-members alike, so bring your friends and share your projects! You'll leave the evening feeling inspired and with new perspectives - whether you're a photographer or not.
