Join us for the Online Launch of Issue 103 LIFE STORIES on 4th February 6.30pm (GMT). Live interviews & Q&A with featured photographer Nik Roche and contributor Dr Annebella Pollen (who also pens our Flea Market Photobooks column). Hosted by SOURCE Editor Richard West. In association with Gallery of Photography Ireland.

Nik Roche adopts a highly immersive method for image making, shaped by his interest in social change and the impact of institutions on individual behaviour. Source Issue 103 'Life Stories' features images from his project It's hard to report a stolen bike stolen, which follows on from the work in his first monograph, The Budgie Died Instantly (Setanta Books, 2020).

Dr Annebella Pollen's academic research areas include mass photography, popular image culture and histories of art, craft, design and dress, especially in relation to marginal, alternative and non-canonical visual and material forms. She is a Reader at University of Brighton and writes the Source online column Flea Market Photobooks. Issue 103 'Life Stories' features her review of Good Pictures: A History of Popular Photography by Kim Beil.
