HARD.BACK is a self published zine and interactive project founded by artist, Amy Mae.
During Hidden Door Arts Festival in May 2015, Amy Mae took in excess of 250 analogue photographs of her audience's backs. Within the same space she developed the 35mm films and exhibited the photographs to create a progressive installation throughout 10 days. Commenting on social media and the vulnerability, voyeurism and vanity it manifests, HARD.BACK is a playful reaction, to turning your back on a 'selfie'.
PLEASE NOTE: Amy Mae would like to thank every single back she shot and apologise if your back did not survive in the making of this zine! Due to the nature of this project and the conditions on site, there were many complications to overcome and unfortunately some frames were lost.
*WARNING THIS ZINE CONTAINS NUDITY!*
