NIPPON Special Edition 2001-2020
Publisher: GRAF Publishers
Includes two signed postcard-sized photographic prints (gelatin silver)
The intangible passing of time, captured in moments
This special edition combines Shuhei Motoyama’s latest photobook “Nippon 2010-2020” with its predecessor, “Nippon 2001-2010,” covering a full twenty years in the oeuvre of the Japanese photographer, and in the changing Japanese landscape.
Motoyama’s works are neither diary nor historical record. Motoyama continued photographing as life kept going on, time continued passing, and the transient world spread further and further around him. His photographs – intricately framed, always keeping a careful distance to his subjects – appear as if taken along the way, as if in passing, yet over the course of the book’s pages a larger significance begins to make itself known.
“I am sure that in the years to come … I will keep on searching for an answer that does not exist, and once again I will start my new journey towards photography, a never-ending exploration.” — from Shuhei Motoyama’s afterword (included in Japanese & English translation)
“Nippon Special Edition 2001-2020” includes two original postcard-sized silver gelatin prints (size: 100 x 150 mm) as well as a box. This two-volume set is limited to an edition of 50.
