Artists books provide a further platform for presenting my work. I often use the Risograph, and stencils or print digitally on to found papers. The books seem to encourage a play between placement of images and enhance the fragmented nature of the work. Having completed a bookmaking course at Hot Bed Press, our group has continued to collaborate and exhibit together as the HB Collective.
I often display the original altered books when exhibiting and wanted a way to bring elements into my current work. I am creating a series of small books which combine fragments of past and present work with my photography.
