Paddy Summerfield’s Remember Hope might be regarded as a coda to the Welsh section of his book, mother and father. It features the same seaside cottage in Wales where he and his parents holidayed.
It has the same elegiac mood but brings the story up to the present. That is to say, as far as photography can depict the present, for in essence, it always deals with the past. – Gerry Badger

About the Artist
Paddy Summerfield is a photographer based in Oxford whose work has been shown in major galleries in London: Serpentine, ICA, Barbican and The Photographers’ Gallery. His first book, Mother and Father (Dewi Lewis 2014) was in several best photobook selections of the year and his upcoming photo book, Empty Days (2017) is drawn from fifty years of photography.

About the Journal
PHOTOPAPER is a new kind of monographic photo publication with a continuously changing editorial team of international experts. These guest editors name photographers or photographic projects which they would like to present to an international public. PHOTOPAPER features this work in single monographic issues of 16 or 32 pages. The main idea is to make high-quality printed photographic work accessible to as many people as possible by producing the final publication at a reasonable price. Therefore, the production process is reduced to a minimum while at the same time using high-end printing technology and a nice paper. Published on a quarterly basis.

About the Publisher
The Fotobookfestival Kassel is a charitable foundation that has been engaged with the artistic medium of the photobook and has presented it in all its facets, since 2008, in a festival program of international standing. The annual festival shows works by renowned artists and promotes established and emerging talents, publishers, designers, printers, curators and booksellers on an international platform. It was the first festival of its kind dedicated to the photographic book and has founded two novel book awards: The KASSEL DUMMY AWARD for the best photobook mock-up of the year has awarded emerging talents a complete photobook-production since 2010; the KASSEL PHOTOBOOK AWARD assembles the best photobooks of the previous year nominated by international experts in the field. Books entered for both awards are showcased regularly in travelling exhibitions at international festivals and photography events. These two awards are unique in their formats and have been role models for other international festivals and events.
