The Independent Photography Festival (IPF) is a global celebration of visual narratives that has been captivating audiences since its inception. The festival, which has graced cities from New York to Melbourne, and now London, showcases a diverse range of photographic talent. The festival’s catalogues, printed by Ex Why Zed, are a testament to the festival’s commitment to quality and creativity. These A5 books, with their 4pp cover onto 290gsm Fedrigoni Sirio and 48pp text onto 130gsm Silk, are a visual and tactile delight. The four-colour print throughout and perfect binding make these catalogues a collector’s item, a tangible memento of the festival’s rich visual offerings.
The festival’s founders, who met over a shared love of Ex Why Zed after both having printed a photobook with us, have created a platform that promotes local talent and fosters international relationships. The festival’s inaugural London residency saw shows and book launches at prominent independent galleries, including Prote.in, 71a Gallery, Dalston Hive, Doomed Gallery, and Peckham Springs. The festival also partnered with House of Vans for a group exhibition and two DIY workshops.
The festival’s catalogues feature an eclectic mix of London-based talent. From Luke Overin’s sharp interpretation of British culture in his series ‘Ultimate Metal Breakdown’ to Kat Hanula’s exploration of spirituality and consciousness in ‘Celestial Communication’, the catalogues are a visual feast. Brian Kanagaki’s ‘Golden Persimmons’ series offers a dreamlike monochrome palette, while Jane Stockdale’s documentation of the Kosovan Olympic team highlights the positive mindset of a new generation. Pani Paul’s candid series on the local kids at Mile End skate park adds a touch of urban grit to the mix.
These catalogues, a testament to the festival’s commitment to showcasing diverse photographic talent, were brought to life by Ex Why Zed, an independent book print company known for its high-quality photobook printing. As a leading name in festival booklet printing, Ex Why Zed has helped countless artists and organisations publish their work, bringing their visual narratives to life in print.
