Established as an imprint of msdm studio,
msdm publications are a small-scale
model of photobook publishing, integrating
photographic and book art practices.
Book woorks are guided by artistic research and investigation of
both formal and conceptual aspects of the photobook
medium. High-quality limited editions—in these days of
automated Print On Demand— makes for a distinctive
approach to photobook. publishing.
Curatorial projects held at msdm studio and at the London South Bank University which have included guest micro-publishers,alumni and students, address exhibitions formats that emerge from enquiries on questions of book art display, photobook installation and social publishing.
Represented in public artists’ books collections worldwide,
msdm publications are accessed by a broader audience and used as educational resources for students and researchers of photobook art.
Free and low-cost photobook making workshops support
art and humanitarian organisations, working directly with their artists to document, exhibit and publish their photographic archives, including work placement opportunities for photography students.
