DoBeDo contributor Jamie Hawkesworth is launching his first book, Preston Bus Station.
Preston Bus Station is a body of photographs produced during sustained engagement with a site of key significance in the development of Hawkesworth’s practice.
In Preston Bus Station, Hawkesworth does not concern himself directly with the political and social concerns of precast concrete. Rather, attention is given to the myriad of people that turn structure into place.
Preston Bus Station is published by Loose Joints, an artist-run publisher and design studio founded in 2015 by Sarah P-Espenon and Lewis Chaplin.
Pre-order is available here on Loose Joints.
This Tshirt can also be purchased here (at a discount) as part of the DoBeDo Photographers Series Tshirt Subscription.
DoBeDo contributor Jamie Hawkesworth returned to Preston for a month this year to document the final days of the iconic Preston bus station, in both photographs and moving image.
The project began over 3 years ago when Jamie first documented the people that passed through the station. Earlier this year a selection of these portraits were then enlarged and displayed inside the station and will remain until it is demolished. Jamie also produced a 10 minute film featuring the children from the ‘All Hallows High School Brass Band’, a moving tribute to mark the end of the project and the final days of the station.
DoBeDo is proud to be exclusively premiering the film, and please click here to see the images in full.
DoBeDo is very happy to announce the addition of its newest contributor Jamie Hawkesworth.
Changing from a degree in forensic science to photography, Jamie has always concentrated on photographing the “here and now” of his native North England. His acute and understated photographs have earned him numerous commissions for contemporary publications as well as nationwide exhibitions.
