back_space_books first exhibited at the 2018 NZ Writers & Readers Festival’s Photobook NZ Book Fair, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. As part of the nationwide biennial photo book festival, the photo book fair celebrates small press photo books – connecting photographers, publishers and book-loving audiences.
Being a powerful vehicle to explore personal work and to communicate ideas to a wide audience, book making enables me to go beyond the boundaries of my current commercial workspace. While these projects are mostly created independently, I also collaborate with photographer Tony Nyberg.
The logo design references a computer keyboard’s backspace key. A metaphor for the ebb and flow that occurs within every creative process, it also refers to turning the page of a book.
