TROLLEYOLOGY
THE FIRST 10 YEARS OF TROLLEY BOOKS


PLATOON KUNSTHALLE is proud to present a night of projections from Trolley Books, london, as a tribute to Trolley's founder Gigi Giannuzzi who recently passed away.

 

since they were founded in 2001, Trolley Books has been highly regarded as a maverick independent publisher of photography, reportage, contemporary art and recently, literature. Gigi Giannuzzi was a well-known figure in the publishing and photographic industries for his original and dynamic approach to photobook publishing as well as his dedication to support important and underexposed stories.

 

in a shock to the photography and publishing worlds he was diagnosed with cancer last year and passed away on christmas eve 2012. shortly before he died work began on a new book TROLLEYOLOGY, to celebrate the first ten years of the award-winning books and authors brought together by Trolley.

 

a chronological anthology of the best from each publication, with behind the scenes and previously unseen material, personal photos, contact sheets, letters and interviews with the photographers, writers and artists Trolley has worked with over the last decade.

 

TROLLEYOLOGY also features filmed interviews with our authors and artists and friends from the worlds of photography, art and publishing, documenting the unique stories from each book and the importance of our small but potent publishing house.

 

at PLATOON KUNSTHALLE we will run extracts from the interviews along with slideshows and music from the individual books published by Trolley.

TROLLEYOLOGY will bring together many renowned contributors including photographers Nan Goldin, Philip Jones Griffiths, Alex Majoli, Stanley Greene, Paolo Pellegrin, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Chien Chi Chang, Tom Stoddart, Nina Berman, Thomas Dworzak, Alixandra Fazzina, Robin Maddock, Jamie Morgan, artists Paul Fryer, Sarah Lucas, Polly Morgan, Mat Collishaw, and writers Iphgenia Baal, Julian Stallabrass, with an introduction by cultural historian Barry Miles.
