back_space_books first exhibited at Photobook NZ Book Fair in March 2018, at Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. The photo book fair is a biennial national photo book festival, celebrating small press photo books and connecting photographers, publishers and their book-loving audiences. This event was part of NZ Writers & Readers Festival.
The photo book is a great vehicle for exploration of personal work and the communication of these ideas to a wider audience. I can explore ideas that are not available to me in my current commercial workspace. These projects are mostly solo works but I also collaborate with photographer Tony Nyberg.
The logo references the backspace key on the keyboard. I see it as a metaphor for the ebb and flow of the creative process but also makes reference to page turning of a book.
