4to, softcover, 700ex, SIGNED, like new.
In the latest book by the japanese photograpy master Kikuji Kawada, published in 700ex, are gathered 30 images from his instagnam account, published between 2019 and 2020.
From artist's statement: “In this tapestry of thirty images, there is neither a prevailing atmosphere of beginning, nor a whiff of the impending end. There is no rhythmic intensity nor diminuendo, no rhyming motifs of color and shape. Instead, images propagate like fungi, cross pollinating while mutating. Occasionally images occur like echoes across dimensions of time and space; other times they cause scrolling shadows to appear. And visions freely crawl the ground, or remain floating in the air, where the mirage of an invisible city flickers.
In 2020, in the midst of a plague, wandering visions may seem a grotesque allegory. Yet the story they weave is far from new. Making their own sounds, they progress through the abyss of the imagination. I’m aware that at any moment they could lose speed."
