Talk and book signing at The Photographers’ Gallery

Mountaintops to Moonscapes: Mountaintop Removal Mining, Wise County, Virginia, 2012

Alan Gignoux will be launching his new photobook Mountaintops to Moonscapes with a special talk and book signing event at The Photographer’s Gallery on May 5th.

Alan will talk about his experiences making this body of work and a related photography series, Oil Sands, which looks at the bitumen mining industry in Alberta, Canada. Oil Sands was self-published as a photobook in 2018 and won first prize in the Los Angeles Center of Photography Photobook Journal competition in 2019.

This will also be a rare opportunity to hear Chloe Juno and Emily Macaulay of Gignoux Photos explain how these unique, hand-made books were created, drawing on both the grassroots tradition of the low-cost zine and the artisanal tradition of Japanese photobooks.

Guests attending on May 5th will have an unmissable opportunity to purchase signed editions of Mountaintops to Moonscapes and Oil Sands with a special 10% discount + free limited edition Gignoux Photos tote bag with each purchase.

Thursday, 5th May from 6.30 – 8pm
