Mark Power - Black Country Stories exhibition publication

To accompany Magnum Photographer Mark Powers 'Black Country Stories' exhibition at New Art Gallery Walsall, Surely designed the A3 exhibition publication. 

Initially the idea was to use uncoated stock but after rigorous proofing, we decided that too much of the subtly of Mark's images were lost on absorbant paper and we opted for a bright white silk stock instead. The finished publication worked really well. With images of this standard we felt that the design aspect had to be almost invisible letting the the large format pictures take centre stage. 

In terms of running order of the publication, from the initial layout only one page was changed by Mark Power, which gave weight to our picture editing/layouts.
