BOOK DUMMY EXHIBITED AT DELHI PHOTO FESTIVAL

I’m honoured and most grateful to have been invited to exhibit a handmade prototype of my new book ‘The Middle of Somewhere’ at the 2013 Delhi Photo Festival. Curated by Sohrab Hura the collection of self-published & dummy books will be exhibited at the Open Palm Court Gallery, India Habitat Centre from September 27th.

The process of creating a photobook is usually long and arduous; for me, the first step is to create a basic dummy to aid in the refining of concept as well as technical analysis. My book dummy is still very much a work-in-progress, a sketch of a book all the way. The prints are ‘roughs’ and  will  need  to  be calibrated.  Changes will be made to the edit, sequence and design.  It’s only once the book dummy has been made and can be held and flipped through that the process moves from mind to matter and becomes a tactile experience as well as a visual one.

This is the first time i’ve ever exhibited something unfinished. i hope its slight roughness helps  bring the viewer inside the book making process, questioning and thinking about all the elements involved, but ultimately going on a journey with me through the images…
