Preston is my Paris was formed in 2009 by Adam Murray and Robert Parkinson. They set it up in order to encourage the exploration of the city they live in. It has now expanded into a publishing platform for a wide range of publications on ever changing subjects and events. They have turned an appreciation of a city into one of the most exciting and prolific self publishing initiatives in the UK.

Although they have stopped producing the original Preston is my Paris zine, attention has moved to new projects. They will still continue to produce individual photographic publications with the next project, Preston Institute of the Everyday.
This will be a multi disciplinary, collaborative project that will encompass photography, printed matter, sound, digital output, live events, writing, lectures and talks. September sees the launch of the first issue of PIE and the first piece of work from PIE can be found in the latest issue of  Art Licks
