Their zines and artist books have been exhibited at Zines of the World, Doomed Gallery, London, UK; and Photoblock, as part of the East London photography festival, Photomonth. Their self-published books have appeared at independent book fairs in Canada, U.S., and UK, and are disseminated by Art Metropole, Toronto, Printed Matter, NY, and The Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, UK.
