- I've been very quiet. I went to New York for a while to work on their anniversary project 'Aperture Remix', a series of special edition books, interventions and sculputural works, culminating in an exhibition to celebrate 60 years of the Aperture Foundation's existence.
Since being back in London I met with Isabelle Evertse from piK magazine, who will feature some of my work for their issue 04, so check that out!
- I also published a book by Guy Archard, called Almost, which came out early 2013, and is now very close to being sold out. You can check that out on the BEMOJAKE page (and buy a copy obviously!).
- I have added four new links in the links section. Motohiko Hasui who is a good friend from college who is now making it big as a fashion photographer in Japan, Stefan Ruiz who's books I've worked on over the years, Frankie Pike who is a photographer and Caitlin Duennebier's new painting works, Oh Papa. Check them out!
- Finally I have been trying to get back on track after taking it easy post-New York. Here is one new picture I've added to Domestic Beauty:
- Check out this great feature of Stop Making Sense on a super online magazine called Actual Colors May Vary. You can see it HERE.
- I also strongly suggest, if you have any work you would like to be featured on ACMV, check out their SUBMISSIONS PAGE.
A few weeks ago I got back from China printing Stefan Ruiz's new book, 'The Factory of Dreams'. It should be published soon by Aperture. Check the book out on Aperture's website HERE
- I'm very happy to say I have been selected as one of the winners for the Magenta Foundation's Flash Forward Award 2012.
- I have been invited to participate in this years C/O Berlin Book Days, where I will share a table with the super duper Anne Schwalbe. Especially for this event I am making a small publication with a selection of photogrpahs I have been working on recently, called 'Work In Progress'. Not sure of all the specs yet, but probably only an edition of 100. I'd also like to bring over a dummy of Six Thousand Miles per Second, just so you can see how it's looking so far.
I'm currently working on a new book, Six Thousand Miles per Second, featuring screen grabs taken of Jun on Skype. The book will be Japanese bound with Japanese chiyogami over the boards, with French leaf folded interior pages. At the moment it's looking like it will be a very small edition, and I think I will have to make it by hand myself. I would love to set up a pre-order, but I really have no idea of how much it will cost. Here is a picture of how it's looking so far:
I will have a print from my new series, Stop Making Sense, in the Warte Fur Kunst's annual Kunstbasar!
