Gabriel Prokofiev crowdfunding alternative classical photobook

Gabriel Prokofiev's label and club night Nonclassical has started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of a photobook documenting the alternative classical scene in London. Photographer Dimitri Djuric has been shooting images for the last few years, and writer Thom Andrewes has been tracking its activities. The book, titled We Break Strings, includes images from Nonclassical events, plus the Kammer Klang series at Cafe Oto, London Contemporary Music Festival, and the Multi-Story Orchestra.

Prokofiev is aiming to raise £5,000, which will pay for printing and distribution. Otherwise, the book is complete and ready for publication, pencilled in for November when the funding target needs to be met. Full Kickstarter details here.
