Dewi Lewis Publishing, Stockport, United Kingdom
Dewi Lewis established his publishing house in 1994. Internationally known, its authors have included photographers such as Martin Parr, Simon Norfolk, Pentti Sammallahti, Paolo Pellegrin, Sergio Larrain, and Anders Petersen as well as many younger emerging photographers. He works in close collaboration with a number of European publishers and is a founding member of The European Publishers Award for Photography, now in its 22nd year.

An Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, Mr. Lewis was awarded the Society’s inaugural RPS Award for Outstanding Service to Photography in 2009, and in 2012, the Kraszna-Krausz Foundation presented him with an award for Outstanding Contribution to Publishing at the Sony World Photography Awards. In 2014 Dewi Lewis Publishing received the PHotoEspana’s prize for Outstanding Publishing House of the Year.

Mr. Lewis has acted as Jury member for several major competitions and as a portfolio reviewer at innumerable international photography. He was a ‘Master’ for the 2009, 2010 & 2011 World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclasses. As well as his own book, Publishing Photography, he writes occasional texts on photography and has curated exhibitions including a survey show of the famous UK magazine, Picture Post, for the 2010 Atri Festival in Italy.

Mr. Lewis is particularly interested in viewing projects which are conceived as book projects. He is not interested in nude, fashion or illustrative travel photography. He is able to provide a realistic overview of publication possibilities as well as advice relating to exhibition and other opportunities. A number of publications by the company have been the direct outcome of portfolio review sessions.
