Back Yard.
Photographs by Daisuke Yokota.
Self Published, 2012. 50 pp., 26 black & white illustrations, 8x11½".

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2012 by:

Back Yard is a curious little softbound photobook self-published by photographer Daisuke Yokota. The heavy black photographs appear to be reproduced on a photocopier - and the dark, grainy reproductions work well to permeate the book with mystery. Sometimes it is hard to discern the details of the photographs but the abstraction is a welcome. The mind loves to look for distinguishable details in the darkness, occasionally finding something that reveals the contents of the photograph. The only words printed in Back Yard appear on the cover - giving us no context but a title, leaving room for the viewer to attach their own meaning and understanding of what is presented.
