nothing to undo



nothing to undo investigates the ontology of the artist’s photobook, an ‘emerging object’ at the intersection of artist’s book (affordable, self-published work with the artist in full control of conceptual and editorial strategies) and the photobook (with its immersive exploration of printed photography in the space of the book).
