Still Life
Photographs by Motoyuki Daifu

Signed copies available to order!

Still Life, is an extension of Motoyuki Daifu's work in Project Family. In this installment, the family home is a dramatic stage, and the dinner table is Daifu's muse: a hectic disarray of mom's cooking, groceries, vivid product packaging, and the spectrum of anonymous objects forgotten in the course of quotidian life. This discordant ensemble is the physical embodiment of daily familial dissonance, illuminated in sharp relief with flash, shot from above.

Everything 1
Photographs by Kenta Cobayashi

Signed copies available to order!

This first published installment of Everything shares its title with a blog that Cobayashi updates daily with photographs expressing everything that he sees in the course of daily life. These images are an aggregation of his own feelings of curiosity and consternation toward the changing role of the photographic medium.

As this volume's theme is 'scalability,' it will be possible to bind together this and all future issues of the Everything series released by Newfave

Orphée
Photographs by Tokyo Rumando

Signed copies available to order!

Rumando is in a room, standing staring into a mirror. But this mirror is enchanted. It not only reflects reality, but also retrieves lost memories, indeed memories of Rumando herself... Anxiety and fear, dark desire and pleasure, decadence and madness, and then death and the void are revealed and magnified by this mirror.

ARRIVING SOON


Provoke
Between Protest and Performance
Edited by Diane Dufour and Matthew S. Witkovsky

Provoke presents the history of the movement and includes reproductions of all three issues of the publication. It is, in our estimation, an essential addition to any collection of Japanese photography.

The short-lived Japanese magazine Provoke, founded in 1968, is nowadays recognized as a major contribution to postwar photography in Japan, featuring the country’s finest representatives of protest photography, vanguard fine art and critical theory in only three issues overall... The movement yielded a wave of new books featuring innovative graphic design combined with photography: serialized imagery, gripping text-image combinations, dynamic cropping and the use of provocatively 'poor' materials.

Undergrowth — SIGNED
Photographs by Shoko Hashimoto

Signed copies available to order!

"I pushed my way through the swirling sea of grass. The darkness beneath the thick ivy soothed me. Whenever my parents scolded me, whenever I felt a sense of failure, I would think 'Ah, I'm all alone,' and go there to hide. It was such a scary place. One day, the smell of chestnuts in the bush told me that I had grown up." — Shoko Hashimoto
