Heavy III Melbourne Launch/Talk — Perimeter Books


We are thrilled to announce the first Australian launch of Heavy III at Melbourne’s Perimeter Books this month. This in-store event will see Jack Harries, The Heavy Collective’s founder, and editor-in-chief, discuss the relationship between photography and writing, the importance of the photographic book, and the more broader ideas circulating around the latest issue of the magazine. The talk is a ticketed event and you will need to book a seat via Eventbrite, you can do so here.

The launch, which kicks off directly after (5-6pm) is not ticketed and we look forward to seeing you there to help celebrate the launch of our newest release.

Heavy III spotlights work and words from 17 contemporary photographers and writers. Through the dialogue between artist & author, the dissemination of ideas & photographic process is explored, landing firmly at the confluence of where images are made and how they are read. Heavy III aims to contribute and further the discussion of contemporary photographic practice by providing an accessible platform for the digestion of image and text on the printed page.

Heavy III includes photographs by Gregory Halpern, Jo Ann Walters, Lindley Warren Mickunas, Matthew Genitempo, Nico Krebs, Rinko Kawauchi, Sam Contis, Taiyo Onorato and Zhang Kechun, as well as writing by Alana Celii, Dan Rule, Daniel Boetker-Smith, Echo Guo, Emma Phillips, Nich Hance McElroy, Nicholas Muellner and Sara Knelman.
