Preston Gannaway & Stuart Smith | Remember Me – GOST publishing

June 13, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

We are pleased to host photographer Preston Gannaway and GOST publisher Stuart Smith online in the Griffin Zoom Room on Tuesday June 13th at 2pm Eastern / 11am Pacific for a conversation about her upcoming publication, Remember Me.

About GOST publishing –

Founded in 2012, GOST Books is an independent visual arts and photography publisher based in London.

We pride ourselves on an uncategorisable output of diverse subject matter and design: from a chronicle of seven men claiming to be the Messiah; a study of Turkish soap operas; art works inspired by the largest breeding grounds for flamingos in the Southern Hemisphere; archive photographs from the Mexico City police department; to portraits of winners of state-run competitions in Belarus.

GOST aims to not only provide a platform for the work of emerging artists but contribute to print legacies of masters in the medium.

About Preston Gannaway –

Preston Gannaway (American, b. 1977) is a documentary photographer and artist whose work examines the relationships between individual, community and landscape. Her first book, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, explored the changing character of a seaside neighborhood in Virginia. Self-published as a handmade artist book, it is held in both private and public collections.

She is currently working on a second book from an on-going project now in its 17th year. Remember Me (GOST, 2023) focuses on a boy growing up in New Hampshire following the death of his mother at age 4. The interplay of everyday details, landscapes and portraits work together to create an intimate longitudinal essay on masculinity, loss and mortality. The beginning of the series was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography.

She was a Light Work Artist in Residence in 2018 and a Pollner Distinguished Professor at the University of Montana in 2019. She serves on the Board of Directors of Women Photograph.

In addition to long form projects, she does commissions for publications and brands such as The New Yorker, Airbnb, and New York Times Magazine. Born and raised in North Carolina, she lives in a cabin in Sonoma County, California with her partner and their calico cat.
