Ten Disciples — SIGNED
Photographs by Tsutomu Yamagata

"The spa of Tamagawa is deep in the rural mountains of Akita prefecture in northern Japan. The valley is filled with radioactive rocks and the ground temperature is high. The air is thick with sulfuric fumes from nearby volcanoes. When I look closely, I see people lying here and there on stretch of gray rock. People fighting cancer throw themselves at the mercy of the radiation that fills the valley and get exposed to the heat of the Earth." —Tsutomu Yamagata

Ten Disciples documents this unique place in a beautifully displayed photobook containing 22 original images. Printed in an edition of 300 copies.

Dhaka 2 — SIGNED
Photographs by Yamauchi Michio

“Bangladesh is one of the most impoverished countries in Asia. A heavy burden is borne by those on the bottom, especially helpless women and children. Why can’t the world show more consideration to these poor but honest and kind people? My lasting impression is of how Dhaka overflows with raw humanity and power. It is not a place where people's pursuit of money warps their nature, or sends them into depression. More than in any other city I’ve visited, people of Dhaka were friendly, not standoffish or miserly in the least.”— Yamauchi Michio

NEW ARRIVALS


Kittenish... — SIGNED
Photographs by Tamiko Nishimura

"If I took photographs, having abandoned my identity as a woman, I think this would leave me with no sense of reality. This doesn’t mean that I take photographs with a conscious sense of being a woman; just as from birth a man is a man, without being simply a woman, for me there is no beginning." — Tamiko Nishimura

Kittenish... is a personal exploration of femininity and the female form. Also in-stock from Tamiko Nishimura: Shikishima.
