The logo design takes its cues from the computer keyboard’s backspace key, a metaphor for the ebb and flow of the creative process; it also refers to turning the page of a book.

back_space books first exhibited at the NZ Writers & Readers Festival’s Photobook NZ Book Fair, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in 2018. The fair is a biennial event celebrating small-press photo books, connecting photographers and publishers with a book-loving audience.

While the majority of these projects are created independently, I also collaborate with photographer and co-publisher, Tony Nyberg.
