Publisher's Description

A range of expressions and emotions permeate the pages as you gradually enter Osamu Yokonami’s (b. 1967, Japanese) continuing exploration of primal instincts. The children glance at you. They unknowingly confront you with their personalities that subtly emanate faced with the challenge of holding onto a fruit or vegetable balancing between chin and shoulder — themselves placed within the ever transitioning clouds.

Frowning in menace or softly smiling, distanced from civilisation, they patiently wait to be depicted closest to their most natural state.

First edition of 700 copies. Special edition of 25 copies, numbered, with blue folder, screen printed in white, and signed original print.
