Offset Projects an initiative that hopes to create channels of engagement with photography and book-making through continued workshops, residencies, artist talks and pop up photo-book reading rooms.

Artist Statement
The photographic document has stood over time to present itself as an unbiased, detached witness to a fact, often erasing the presence and sensitivities of the photographer behind it. The supposition of a final truth, a single uncompromising fact that can be captured, has placed upon the photograph and its creator a great weight. Within this medium, the growth and emergence of the photo-book has allowed an authorship to the act of creation of personal independent voices. The influence of ones’ perception in the creation of our truths, is presented with greater strength within the form of the book. Objects, situations and narratives become symbolic of these multiple realities. While envisaging the aspects of our metaphorical environments, the books included, look to prod deeper into an understanding of how we perceive the world today. It is keen to explore approaches to photographic bodies of book-making that give light to the various truths we surround ourselves with. The Offset Pitara is keen to look at the multiplicities that exist within spheres of our public worlds, mass migrations, environmental impact on the human race and in personal associations of reality connected by memories and relationships.
