Hotam is a series of artist’s books disguised as a magazine. Having worked with the “magazine” format for some time, I decide to experiment further in this form. In Hotam #1 (A Brief History of Me), I would like to give an introduction to my life, so far. My old photographs and the history events form together a timeline. Although no year or date is specified, the reader can tell the time because each page represents a year of my life. Having turned 50, I try to look inward at my somewhat privileged life and reflect upon my position in the world.
