Description of book: In response to an open call, eleven people living in Brighton & Hove volunteered to collaborate with me over the process of nine months to use photography to explore perspectives about being queer and to create a new series of Collaborative Portraits. In February 2014 the Collaborative Portraits were exhibited as large-format posters in outdoor public spaces across Brighton & Hove, and 3,000 copies of the not going shopping newspaper were distributed free throughout the city. The not going shopping newspaper contains excerpts from notgoingshopping.blogspot.co.uk and snippets from our private Facebook discussions, as well as documentation of us working together and the Collaborative Portraits. 

The best thing about self-publishing: Being able to show the work to more than one kind of audience.
