When making books I work collaboratively, sharing responsibility for idea generation, concept development, picture editing, and layout development. I’m always actively involved with the writing and editing too.
Working with Anna Douglas always results in a volume that will have meaning long after the associated event or exhibition has closed.
Life Less Ordinary was our first collaboration following Anna’s trip to South Africa to discover artist’s post-apartheid preoccupations. The focus on the body underlies this collection of artists’ work, prefaced by a survey of ethnographic photographer Alfred Duggan-Cronin’s work, and a thought provoking piece on racial biopolitics.
The exhibition opened in Nottingham’s Djanogly Art Gallery in September 2009.
Other work included the design of the logotype and exhibition graphics.
