“RRB Photobooks is proud to launch Platform, a new publishing project supporting emerging voices in British Documentary Photography. The project draws on the photographic legacy of RRB's existing catalogue to take part in writing the documentary tradition of the future.
The inaugural Platform title, Hannah Platt's Nosey Parker, will launch at BOP Bristol. Book signing details will be announced shortly.
In Nosey Parker, Hannah Platt revisits Peter Mitchell's Leeds and surrounding cities five decades after he first picked up a camera. Platt works with a quickness and wry humour where Mitchell is contemplative; drawn to bright colour, graphic lines and typographic treasures.
This series celebrates the everyday. Fleeting beauty, bold type, golden sunrises, and stand-out shop fronts wink to the charm and wit of a very British land. In every nook and cranny, photographer Hannah Platt captures the mundanity of our lives with an appreciation for the people and places, of Leeds and beyond, that showcase their unsupervised humour - which is perfect for a Nosey Parker.
This playful approach is reflected in Platt's design work. A strong colour story, laser cut details and a hidden final image engage the viewer and encourage interaction with the book as object as well as photographic narrative.
The book includes a foreword by Peter Mitchell, pioneer of colour photography in British documentary and Leeds institution.
A Special Edition of 50 copies with signed and limited 10x8" print is produced in collaboration with Photographique, Bristol.”

Blue reprint (May 2021) of ‘Out of Order’ including address insert and postcard print.
‘Out of Order’ is a project full to the brim of photos taken up and down the UK between 2017-2020. It serves British wit and charm through moments of grittiness and silliness; with shots of shop fronts, handwritten signs and other happenings that made me stop and smile - acting as a loving ode to daily British life.
In September 2020 I dedicated a month to producing ‘Out of Order’, releasing the first edition of 50 in January 2021 and recently a second print featuring all the same photos, and fun quirks as the first 50 copies, but now with a new blue cover!!
Head to my shop to purchase your own copy of ‘Out of Order’...
