A new book exploring a decade of photography project Preston is my Paris published by Dashwood Books. Preston is my Paris 2009-2019 explores ten years of independent photographic practice that sought to investigate themes relating to everyday life, regional identity and the role that photography and culture can have outside of major urban centres. Adam Murray and Robert Parkinson began Preston is my Paris in July 2009 as a photocopied zine with the intention of encouraging the exploration of Preston as a subject for creative practice. Over a decade it developed into a multi-faceted project rooted in photography that includes publications, site-specific installations, live events, digital applications, education and writing.
