Cover to Cover is a small survey of Ho Tam’s publishing practice, which has been a focus of his since 2010. HOTAM and POSER are two ongoing projects among his collection of work from this period. HOTAM is a self-published/self-titled book series using the
magazine format, treating each issue as an independent project, exploring both form and content. Similar in format, POSER is a series of snapshot photography books. Cover to Cover is about the artist behind the lense -- the artist as traveler or outsider who
photographs other travelers and people in transit.
Ho Tam was born in Hong Kong and did his studies in Canada and the US. He practices in multiple disciplines including photography, video, painting and print media. His feature documentary film Books of James was awarded Outstanding Artistic Achievement
