When invited by the organisers to set up stall at Cardiff’s prestigious new international fair we jumped at the chance. The Fair is part of Diffusion: Cardiff International Festival of Photography – Cardiff’s first month-long biennial festival of exhibitions, screenings, performances, events and celebrations, which runs throughout May.

The Publisher’s Fair will be host to international contemporary book arts and print practice, with Q&A sessions, various launches and signings, with a focus on publishing, artists’ DIY activity through to larger, established publishing houses, magazines and galleries.

Photography has always formed an important part of Corridor8’s coverage of contemporary art and writing practice. Highlights of our first issues were work by Iain Sinclair and Chris Petit. From Issue #2 onwards we have very been fortunate to have the London-and-Manchester-based photographer Stephen Iles as our staff photographer. Stephen’s portraiture and installation photography has visually underpinned the four parts of Issue #3.

We look forward to seeing you, to browse, buy or just to chat. Deals will be available on back issues of Corridor8, as well as generous student discounts. We may also still have a few remaining copies of our special limited edition of Issue #3 with its unique hand-finished silk-screen binding.
