Internationally renowned photographer, Peter Fraser, popped into HQ this week to sign copies of his latest book – Two Blue Buckets. This edition is a “Director’s Cut” of Fraser’s seminal work, first published in 1988. It includes 19 images that were missing from the original, a new essay by Gerry Badger, and a discussion between Peter Fraser and David Campany.
We’re thrilled to have taken delivery of a consignment of this much sought after publication, available now from our online shop. And the really good news is that we have two signed copies to give away in our latest competition.
@photographers – we’re running an Instagram competition of Two Blue Somethings. Take a picture of two blue anythings and upload them to Instagram; tag your images #tpro_ldn_twoblue to enter. It can be anything as long as there are two of them and they are blue! @peter_fraser9 will be following the posts and selecting his favourites. The favourites will all have the chance to appear in a future issue of our zine Rosie. And whoever posts Peter’s overall favourite will win a signed copy of his book.
@authors – submit a piece of flash fiction (no more than 750 words) that contains the phrase ‘two blue buckets’. Send your entry via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with Two Blue Buckets in the subject line. NB – this is a one-off competition and not part of the main Urban Flash project.
This challenge closes at midnight (UTC) on Monday, May 8, 2107, we’ll announce the winner and zine finalists soon after!
NEWS FLASH: Two Blue Buckets has been chosen by Sean O’Hagan in The Observer as his Photography Book of the Month.
