Artist Talk at Sun Pier House: Rikard Österlund, Photographer
Part of +Margate.19 with Turner Contemporary, host of Turner Prize 2019
One year on from publishing his photobook ‘Look, I’m Wearing All the Colours’ Rikard will talk about the journey of making this book and what has happened since.
His debut book is a tender love letter to his wife Zara. Through intimate photographs it explores a relationship lived with invisible illness as a third person. It was a winner in Athens Photography Festival 2019 and featured on two lists of the best photobooks of 2018. Rikard has also made books with Billy Childish including ‘Man in the Mouth of a Cave’; about his remarkable painting studio. An image from this series was a winner of Portrait of Britain 2018.
As a co-founder of Rochester PhotoBook Club he will also discuss his love of photographic books and what they can teach us, not only about other places, but in allowing us to see through someone else’s eyes.
Tuesday 29th October, 7pm – 9pm
£5 per person – pre-book online – Tickets from Eventbrite for Rikard Osterlund
