Yutaka Takanashi: Machi Yutaka Takanashi: Machi

Fulfilling the aim of Provoke to "capture...the shards of reality that existing language cannot possibly grasp, and to aggressively confront language and confront thought with a variety of data," Takanashi's fragmented color compositions capture the multi-layered reality of Tokyo through unexpected juxtapositions and dramatic lighting. Bold shadows and an intensely moody color palette highlight a plenitude of contemporary detail. READ MORE

from the book Phantom City
from the book Phantom City

Phantom City by Kim Bouvy

"Phantom City is a little mystery of a book. Subtitled "A Photo Novel," it is designed to mimic a small paperback novel and is divided into chapters with alternating pages of text and images, some with borders and captions, some full bleed, creating a lovely striped pattern along the book's outer page edges. The exterior masquerade is spoiled when lifted - the book's weight and rigidness give away its fine interior paper and lovely printing that capture the rich blacks and soft fog in Kim Bouvy's photographs, as well as the speckled half-tone of the newspaper images." — From the review by Sarah Bradley of Kim Bouvy's Phantom City

The Dancing Night by Yasuwo Tsuji

"The Dancing Night is made up of a series of dour, grainy, black and white cityscapes that are all shot at night. A majority of the images feature a range of excruciatingly mundane subject matter such as weeds, trash, leaves and asphalt. These micro urban terrain shots use very low or completely ground level angles, as if the photographer is literally crawling through the underbrush and city streets. There is an overbearingly dark atmosphere to these photographs that makes them difficult to engage with." — From the review by John Mathews of Yasuwo Tsuji's The Dancing Night

Decathlon Zines

We've just received five of the six yet published zines from Decathlon Books (we're waiting on stock for number 2 — Sleep Talking by Todd Jordan). Decathlon was started by Duncan Hamilton and Peter Sutherland to feature artists, designers and photographers they find interesting, and as the name implies, will ultimately publish ten zines in the series. So far, the books are fantastic. These are the kind of zines for grown-ups — perfect or staple bound, glossy covers and well laid out but produced on the cheap — the newsprint interiors are a reminder of the xeroxed zines that many of the artists featured in this series have made in the past.

Read the full blog post on all of the Decathlon zines here.

You can listen to the interview here. It's a thoughtful interview in which Nahmais talks about the origin of this project and its evolution, which changed in scope and focus as he explored his subject matter.
