Soap and Rocket is a Fine Art photography project, dedicated to analog / film based based image making.

The idea is to publish limited edition Soap and Rocket photo’books of different artists’ work, backed up with a  website featuring an archive of published photo’books and a gallery shop selling limited edition picture prints, photography books and in time other associated products, for example, films.

Soap and Rocket launched in its beta version in June 2016. Critique is welcomed – please use the contact form. The target publication date for the next Soap and Rocket publication is late January ’17. The photo’books are planned as A5 sized, printed in runs of 150 copies in monochrome and colour and presenting a short piece of writing with 12 / 16 pictures and  from one artist per episode. Portfolio & written contributions are welcome, please get in touch via the Contact page.

Chris Daly, the editor is a practising artist – see www.fakephoneyreality.com
