David Hurn

“In 1970 I was a successful documentary photographer based in Bayswater. I returned home to Wales as a rest from living in London, and planed to spend a year there shooting freely. I met John Wright, the enlightened head of Newport College of Art, and Peter Jones from the Arts Council. They asked: “Was it possible to teach being a photographer”?

I put heart and soul into setting up and running a course that would swap my experience for the individual potential of each student. All tutees had two things in common, non-fiction curiosity about the world and seeing photography as a fun way of having a profession. To this end I needed to have final total control, as soon as this was threatened, I resigned.

I always thought of photography as my real job — by example was the only way I knew how to teach. I needed to, and managed to keep shooting pictures on at least a couple of days a week.” David Hurn


Café Royal Books

Café Royal Books is an independent publishing house set up by Craig Atkinson in 2005. He is based in Southport, England. CRB release regular publications with the broad subject of British Documentary Photography since 1960. This includes international photographers who work within the British Isles. Alongside photographers from the British Isles who work internationally. There are a few exceptions, with titles that sit alongside this general theme.

This type of work has historically been neglected by both photographers and institutions. Café Royal Books aim is to source, gather, and re/present this work as a collective whole. And, thus, give it a wider audience. CRB publish at least one title every week, presenting, generally, one series by one photographer.

The books combine elements of zines, photobooks, artist books and educational resource. The books are affordable, democratic, utilitarian and useful. They come out regularly and in small editions. So, great to collect.
