17th October 10am to 1pm

at M Shed Museum


You are invited to the launch of All Hands on Deck, an artist photobook depicting Bristol at work featuring unseen images of Bristol Industrial History.

All Hands on Deck marks the end of Factory of Memories #1, a commissioned project coordinated by Alejandro Acín and M Shed in collaboration with University of the West of England, University of Bristol and IC-Visual Lab.

Inspired by the Langford collection of company history booklets at the University of Bristol, photographer Alejandro Acín has drawn a journey through some of the most important businesses in the city creating an hand made artist book which will be available to purchase for £8.

Alejandro Acin is a photographer and producer based in Bristol as well as Director of IC-Visual Lab. He has done a variety of educational and artistic projects as well as curated a regular programme of photography events, exhibitions and festivals.

The stunning image collections together with contemporary images by students at the University of the West of  England, create an exciting, amusing, occasionally disturbing and thought-provoking publication.
