‘Veritas Editions, a publisher of premium limited edition books combining image with narrative, is pleased to exhibit The Spirit Within Australia: The Land and The People, an Artist Book featuring original photographic-based art produced using historic hand-crafted processes from both well-known and emerging Australian photographic artists. This fine press edition illustrates the diversity of the land and the people. It is of heirloom quality for passing from generation to generation and to last for centuries in important Collections.
Veritas Editions founder Craig Alan Huber describes his motivation for producing the book and curating this inaugural exhibition of the work:
“This project began after I first visited Australia in 2015 and was struck by the rugged beauty of the land and the people, as well the vibrancy of the alternative/historic process photographic community in Australia”
The exhibition at PhotoAccess will be the first time that all 30 original artworks and letterpress-printed book pages will be shown on the walls of a gallery, as well as in the original book format.’
