Moose has invited Tom Hunter to select books from the LCC Library. In 1894, the Saint Bride Foundation Institute Printing School opened in Saint Bride Lane, London as a social, educational and cultural centre, housing both a technical library and printing school to provide tuition for local printers and students.
This early library has now grown to an extensive and important resource for students and staff alike, housed at the London College of Communication at the Elephant and Castle.
The photobook plays a vital role in photographic education and has become a focus of interest for photographers, collectors and curators, with numerous specialist publishers (including GOST, MACK, Here Press, Steidl, Schilt, Hatje Cantz, and Dewi Lewis) all playing their part in the commissioning, making and dissemination of the photobook across the world. For photographers, the photobook plays a central part in the dissemination of work, and its importance as a means of promoting and disseminating photographic work cannot be overestimated.
Moose on the Loose has invited Tom Hunter, photographer and author of a number of monographs, to select books from the LCC Library, which will then be displayed in the cabinets which face onto one of the main throughways of LCC.
