Martin first approached us in late 2014 with the idea of producing a photobook on his long term project Midlands. Through discussions with Martin we decided that the best option was to bring Martin into our studio for an intensive 3 day one-on-one workshop, with the goal of coming out with a finished dummy at the end of these 3 days. During this workshop we worked on the image selection, sequencing, layout and the early stages of design.
Since the workshop we have worked closely with Martin on developing the book further, while keeping the initial sequence and layout, the overall design has been further developed to compliment the project, and In the summer of 2015 Midlands went to print and was launched in September in the Gallery of Photography, Dublin as a limited run of 200 copies.
You can find more information on this project and see how the finished photobook was realised here.
