In response to the display they curated, BP Spotlight: Source, Tate Collective London devised a series of workshops which explored a different theme for each of the 6 months that the display was open.
September explored street photography with a zine-making workshop led by the editors of Accent Magazine, an online photographic publication which celebrates the stories of a set of people from all over the world in each issue.
The group visited Source and discussed works within the display which related to the theme, works like this photograph of a man and his dog by Keith Arnatt and a portrait of a young man Ori by Seamus Nicholson. We also heard the story behind the portrait of Al and Klaus (above) commissioned by Accent for the street photography edition of the Source brochure.
Editors Lucy and Lydia then presented a history of zine-making and self-publishing, and showed the group a selection of publications for inspiration before setting the brief.
The group got to making, using images from their own portfolios, the Tate collection and other publications. After everyone’s zines were complete, and two copies made (one for keeping, one for the Accent archive) they were displayed as a collection and each presented to the group in a show and tell.
Here are some finished spreads from the session:
