                         AKAAKA / "Here Goes River" by Aya Fujioka

"River runs like blood, so does blood like river"

brownie publishing / "Yes Madam, Sorry Ah Sir" by Paul Yeung

Hong Kong photographer Paul Yeung tries to challenge the routine of traditional documentary, which sometimes captures the most sensational moment to provoke audience. In contrast, Yeung adopts a humorous and distant point of views to penetrate the deeply-rooted superiority and authority image of the police, and reveal the less-known side of them, in order to raise a thinking about the essence and meaning of the profession.

 

Case Publishing / "Overflow" by Takuma Nakahira 

Takuma Nakahira, one of the most legendary photographers of post-war Japan and a life-long rival of Daido Moriyama. Overflow is the first photobook in which his installation work comes alive in entirety and detail since its unveiling in 1974. The photographs show elements of a city — eery rifts in a space overflowing with objects, commodities and information — that Nakahira encountered and captured in his everyday life, from ivy creeping across walls and manhole covers in the streets to the tire of a large truck, from a pale-bellied shark floating in the transparent darkness behind the glass of an aquarium to close-up shots of a subway station.

Foto Feminas / "Los Mundos de Tita" by Fabiola Cedillo (Ecuador)

Tita, the photographer’s older sister who is the protagonist of this project. However, it could be referred to any of us. Tita appears in some of the photographs and she is the authors of the drawings inside the book. It is a story halfway between documentary, essay and child adventure book.

Foto Feminas / "B to B" by Brenda Moreno (Mexico)

Moreno's intention, through images of her family and the ones she chose to call a family, is to convey the roles we fulfil, how one finds comfort within them and how it soothes us. In her search on identity, she follows moments, details and exploration of materials and errors of everyday life.

 imageless / "Maiden Voyage" by Amiko Li

On Amiko Li's "Maiden Voyage," photographer Tim Davis writes: "[It] is a probe, sent to the limits of photographic connectedness." The images, diary-like in nature, together make an idiosyncratic view of the human experience. "Li draws together images that are strummed on the harp of one sharp-eared young romantic artist, but whose meaning together builds odd harmonic overtones as images pile up. This work is the diary of a vision of the world, not of a person." Maiden Voyage won PDN The Curator’s Award and Center Project Launch Award, it was nominated MACK First Book Award, and shortlisted at Istanbul PhotoBoo Festival and Belfast Photo Festival.

 

Agnes Shuk-mei KU / "Where Time Turns Black"

The author entered into her elderly mother’s lost memory space, returning to the old district where she spent her childhood ... Blackness ─ a feeling of mysterious suspense, hovers between the individual and the collective, between remembering and forgetting, and between the past and the present. The book, which traverses photography, writing and sociology, has received an international award in photography.     

 

谷淑美 /《流光.時黑》 墮進年邁母親所遺失的記憶空間內,重返孩童時曾生活的舊區,作者環顧城市四周,誘發她對時間、記憶與存在的沉思冥想……黑色,一份神秘的懸念,盤旋於個人與集體、 記憶與遺忘、過去與現在之間。《流光.時黑》是一本探索影像、寫作及社會學思考的跨領域創作,曾獲國際攝影獎項。

 

               Libro Arte / "border | korea" by Yusuke Hishida

North Korea and South Korea: a single group of people that not so long ago lived as one now leading completely separate realities on opposite sides of a military boundary known as the “38th Parallel.” “border/korea” is an attempt to illustrate these two countries divided by a line drawn on a map, using delicately juxtaposed photos.

 

               Michioto Publishing / "Noroshi" by Sohei Terui

Sohei Terui has been taking photography of mainly Kumano, Omine, and Koyasan, one of the holiest mountains in Japan. His works depict the depths of nature, which he describes as a bottomless swamp. Noroshi (meaning signal smoke) consists of instantly frightening photographs coupled with some essays. He will also join HK Photobook Fair at the booth of Michioto Publishing.

             Nai Wen Hsu / "Unspoken" 

 

               Photography is Art / "Photography is Art Issue 03"

  shashasha / "Ango" by Daido Moriyama

"In the old times, before the capital changed from Kyoto to Tokyo, cherry trees were considered a frightful sight. No one thought them a sign of beauty. […] Without a trace of human life beneath it, a cherry in full bloom becomes a fearful sight.”
The fifth installment of Match & Company’s “Japanese Photography x Contemporary Literature” series. In “Daido Moriyama: Ango”, Daido Moriyama’s frightening photographs of cherry trees are set to Ango Sakaguchi’s famous short-story “In the Forest, Beneath Cherries in Full Bloom”. The “demonic beauty of the cherry blossoms” of Moriyama and Sakaguchi turn into a jet-black photobook of bottomless loneliness, emptiness and dangerous seduction.
