Too Much To Unlearn documents work by artist Erik Gustafsson. Casual black and white installation shots form a striking parallel to his photographic works, both in terms of process and as picture. As documentation, reproductions, or as works of art, these photographs reflect Gustafsson’s ongoing interest in multiple readings and how to create photographs. The imagery is complemented by a text by Johannes Björk, written in response to the front and back of the publication.
– Erik Gustafsson.
Too Much To Unlearn is published by FLAT and printed on Risograph in a limited 50 copies.

Calculated Coin Flips 1 of 5
Calculated Coin Flips by Minh Ngoc Nguyen explores the playing field and boundaries between analogue photographs and computer-generated imagery.
The identity for the exhibition is based on a grid and the imagery is placed within the grid as a manipulative factor, bending and breaking the text according to its position. Thus the identity aims to tell a story about manipulation, taking a visually direct approach to Minh’s work that centers around the very idea of manipulation in photography.
The exhibition ran at Gallery Rotor 2 in Gothenburg, Sweden between March 23–26, 2018.
The Sun Watches The Sun 1 of 4
Visual identity for the BFA exhibition at Funen Art Academy (Det Fynske Kunstakademi), class of 2019.

Furthermore the title aims to implicitly question the relation between work and viewer, the artist and society at large.

Front & Center 1 of 19
Front & Center is a self-initiated publication showcasing photography from everyday life. The title is a reflection of the self-realisation that the photographic work generally tends to put the subject “front and center”.
By centering the typography on both the front, back and spine the cover aims to confront itself with the question of what is actually the front and center on the publication. The contradiction aims to question itself and works as a critique of the photographic work in general.
Front & Center is published by FLAT and printed in a limited 10 copies.
