Special Edition for Giovanna Silva’s Good Boy 0372. Comes in four variations each with a different numbered print.

Sudan, the only remaining male northern white rhinoceros. Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya.
This project documents Sudan, the last white rhinoceros of North Africa. Sudan lived his life inside the Prague zoo, before being transferred to Kenya for reproduction and specie preservation. Sudan lives under armed protection. Giovanna Silva spent ten days in his wildlife preserve, following him from a close distance. The book, entitled Good Boy – the way the guards call the rhinoceros, this lullaby which endlessly accompanied Giovanna’s days with the rhino – 0372, his breeding number, is a tribute to this prehistoric and unique animal. The book is conceived as a sequence of abstract images, in which the animal is barely recognizable, and close-up of his skin and his body progressively fading away.

The Incomplete Princess Book. Irina Popova.

Each copy of the “The Incomplete Princess Book” has a unique handmade frontcover.

Project “The Incomplete Princess Book” created by Russian-Dutch artist Irina Popova is a virtual journey to Russia: a new way of meeting people (through browsing their profiles), and a new way of photographing them (using the images found on the internet). For this project, the artist used the Russian version of Facebook — Vkontakte*.

Irina Popova has found over 8000 different profiles registered under the name Irina Popova. Indeed, both the surname Popov and first name Irina are very common in Russia. She browsed the profiles with a growing curiosity – because those Irina Popovas scattered over Russia, of different ages and social status, were likely to represent the full range of possibilities for a woman’s destiny given their different circumstances.

Social networks have not only become the substitutes for traditional family albums, but a major source of entertainment and a form of self-representation.

It seems that in such a patriarchal country as Russia women seriously struggle for male attention, and the most important factor for life success becomes a glamorous (and sometimes exaggerated) idea of beauty.

In it’s original edit the project contains about 36 000 images. Popova worked with 3 assistants for 3 months to download these images, one by one. The project was first presented in the Hermitage Museum, Amsterdam in November 2013, in a group exhibition “Russian Ateliers on Amstel”. Here Popova took two walls, filled with more than 1000 images.

It took her another two years to make the final selection and to shape it into book form.

This book series brings documentation of the numerous activities carried out by Katsunobu Yaguchi over the past seven years at “Cafe Snack Washingtown” (2008-2013) and “The Site of Washingtown” (2013-2015).
In the autumn of 2008, Katsunobu Yaguchi encountered an empty house when strolling around the town of Mito. Hearing that it may be demolished soon, he decided to reinstall water and electricity to the ground floor of the house to celebrate the time that was still left to it. He named the place “Café Snack Washingtown” and embarked on his new calling. Although the atmosphere of the house was obviously shadowy, curious eccentrics stopped by cautiously and the house awoke from its deep sleep. This caused a small neighborhood movement to arise around the house. Consequently, the original demolition was postponed for another five years.

In 2013, The Washintown finally faced its demolition at the hands of Yaguchi himself. Two and half years have gone by since then. The ‘late’ Café snack Washingtown skeleton is still standing. With bamboo scaffolding and part of the outer wall remaining, the house gives off a murky aura. At the entrance, the travelers’ guardian deity of megalopenis stands inconspicuously. This bizarre atmosphere seems to have surrendered to its fate that at any moment the house will make way for a new building. Yet the “old Washingtown site” continues to ignite neighborhood movements. “Washingtown Documentaries 2008-2015” contains cutting-edge images that were lovingly taken over the past seven and “on-the-edgy” years.

“I view achitecture as man himself. After all, achitecture is constructed by man. Architecture is a monument to the passion and effort of those who create it. The growth of architecture is derived from the life of its occupants. Considering architecture solely as a machine is cold. As occupants go about their daily lives, their emotions and experiences are stored within the architecture, providing it with warmth and a chance to breathe. As Le Corbusier said, achitecture is a “machine for living.” Man expects to be protected by architecture, whether it be in order to think, to cry, to dance or to sing freely.”

-Excerpt Tamami Iinuma House of Architecture

Published by Post/limArt and designed by Yoshihisa Tanaka, Tamani Iinuma’s House of Architecture presents a photographic approach to the architectural creations by celebrated modernists Le Corbusier and Kunio Mayekawa. Within, Iinuma’s photographs present a visual abstraction of form and subject, where both man as architect and building as structure stand side by side as an interdependent unit in continuous dialogue with its built environ. House of Architecture is an elegant and considered presentation of Iinuma’s imagery, allowing both image and subject further space for engagement within the structural form of the photobook.

The publication includes texts by Thibaut de Ruyter, Yuzuru Tominaga, Tadamoto Oshima and Tamami Iinuma.

All text available in Japanese and English.

This book is an attempt at grasping an important part of Květa Fulierová’s archive, which holds a selection of negatives and printed black and white photographs stowed away in envelopes, marked according to themes and sorted chronologically in chocolate boxes. These photographs pertain to the everyday of a family; of her shared household with Július Koller from the period starting in the eighties, when Květa’s grandsons were born, and ending in their adulthood and the passing away of Július Koller in 2007.
