‘Nosey Parker’ Photowalk & GiveawayIts your chance to win a copy of Nosey Parker & a C-Type Print!
26th September - 13th October 2022
Leeds!! I’ve orchestrated some fun for you all...
Take to the streets of Leeds on your own photo walk and search for the Nosey Parker QR codes, please see my map for locations & ‘what three words’ coordinates to help you find the locations. Take your time with it, it’ll run between Monday 26th September - Thursday 13th October.
When you make it to the locations take a photo in that area in whichever style you fancy/ whatever you're drawn to or inspired by, it can be as silly or as serious as you like - I just want to see what you see. Then post the photo to your Instagram, either your grid or stories, I'm easy, just be sure to tag me (@hannahbplatt) so I see it. You’ll also need to scan the QR code and fill in the google form attached to enter, so I have your contact details and whatnot.
The more locations you make it to and photograph the more entries you’ll have for the draw. They’ll be a copy of the book & a c-type print up for grabs for the draw winner, I'll also be giving out a handful of Risograph prints for my favourite photos from the draw.

If you do participate, I ask that you’re gracious on your walk, be respectful to communities, and recognise your privilege as a photographer. If that means choosing not to take a particular photo, then please consider that.
Have fun, and fingers crossed for the draw...

Bound Art Book FairOctober 2022
Whitworth Gallery, Manchester
Myself & Emma Bentley Fox were down at Bound Art Book Fair for this October.
It was such a great weekend for meeting so many of you, so many artists, publishers and followers that I’ve had online relationships with for years. Massive thanks to everyone who purchased any books, prints & calendars - and for all the conversations I shared about my work, I’m looking forward to working with some of you in the future...
Massive thanks to Robert & Joe for having us along, see you next year?
Announcing 2023 Calendar - Three’s a CharmThis year each calendar will be made to order...
Taking Orders Now!
After the success of my 2022 calendar Two Sitting Ducks, I’ve been back at it creating you another year long injection of my work.
This years calendar is chunkier in size (A3) meaning the photos sit much bigger on your wall, and you have more space to scribble in your upcoming plans.
Three’s a Charm still includes the fun bits you loved about last years, including stickers for your fave days. I also got a bit carried away and I’ve added a scratch off element every month that reveals a sometimes silly and sometimes charming national day.
Its a fun one!! Order yours HERE, each calendar will be made to order this year, and will be shipped in December.
Designed and assembled by me, inc cutting, punching, and binding.
Wire spiral bound
180gsm recycled paper
Includes 9 stickers for your fave fun days
Interactive scratch-off element every month
Please get in touch if you have any questions...
Dutch Design Week
Graphic Events: At the Asphalt-Level21-29 Oct - Eindhoven
I was incredibly pleased to be asked to be involved in Graphic Events: At the Asphalt-Level, during this year's Dutch Design Week over in Eindhoven. I took of photo of Brighouse’s Chemist earlier this year, which sat alongside the work of other artists, practitioners, and general lovers of all things type...
Graphic Events: At the Asphalt-Level
Everyday graphics are often faded, misplaced, and torn, they act in ways that we wouldn’t say are by design. At the Asphalt-Level takes seriously the feeling that graphics are dynamic moments that are always going on. The series of photographs and film stills bring attention to the peculiar ways that mundane graphics exist and the unusual ways they are encountered in daily life, they are typical of what James Dyer and Nick Deakin call “Graphic Events”.
