In the second of a series of ongoing discussions on photobook experimentation and publishing in Wales, Ellie Hopkins and Brian Carroll, co-editors of the new Offline Journal issue #005, spoke with Huw Alden Davies in late August in advance of the big reveal of his new self-published book Scaffold to the Moon (audio clip at the top of this page).

We discuss Huw’s approach to the photography and book design; the included writing that developed from an extensive series of Blog posts; and forming iPigeon - a new photobook publishing venture with co-founder Dan Staveley - to release the ‘part novel/part photobook’.
