"For this collaboration, the artists installed a temporary workspace in a local bar in which they collected, combined and reproduced images using a photocopier. They responded to each other’s proposals by adding images, editing existing ensembles or by responding to the traces that arose during the project. The final book, an edition of 65, was handmade during a live event."

Marianne van Loo - Pansheel Park Delhi 2012

16 pages
289 x 380 mm (11.4 inch x 15 inch)
Edition size: 20
type of printing : digital, colour
Price: 10£ including P&P

"Exploration of workers and their jobs in Pansheel Park, New Delhi. Once India starts allowing companies such as Wall Mart and Tesco into their country, critics fear that this will destroy millions of jobs. Where in the Western world can you still find a man that just sells tomatoes, or some plastic toys from the back of a bike? Most of these jobs will disappear in the future because of India's growing economic wealth. This is a visual record of a current social climate."

Adrian Tyler - Dust to Dust

Title: Dust to Dust
Artist: Adrian Tyler
40 pages
Edition size: 550
Offset litho
Softcover with dustjacket
Price: 25 Euros + shipping

"Dust to Dust draws inspiration from early still life painting and recent discoveries in quantum physics both of which tell us, metaphorically and scientifically respectively that we are a small part of a vast inerconnected cosmos, and a part of that infinite expanse resides inside each and every one of us. Drawn from an archive of 8 years work in the Outer Western Isles of Scotland, Dust to Dust juxtaposes images of former dwellings slowly being decomposed by the elements with images of found books in various states of disintegration, both of which can be seen to correspond to the meaninglessness of earthly life and its transient nature."

Paul Graham - Automaton

Title: Automaton
Artist: Paul Graham
12 pages
Size: A5
Edition Size: 50
 Price: Price of Postage from UK

"With my imagery, I attempt to explore the effects of emerging technologies within society. We are becoming more dependent on these technologies, and more detached from real, physical interaction with the world around us. My project Automaton questions this trend through the use of allegory. The basis for each photograph is an event which, through referencing science fiction imagery, begins to question these technologies."

Lex Thompson - Cave Drawings

Title: Cave Drawings
Artist: Lex Thompson
50 pages
Edition size: 100
digital press printed
Price: $20 + shipping

"Like Plato’s allegorical cave, a physical cave is a place distended with mystery. Photography records dark shadows and vignettes of otherworldly light, while the delicate intimacy of the bright drawings depict the formations that are hidden within. Together, they generate some understanding of the place and what is necessary to represent it, depicting both the darkness and the detail of the underground landscape."

Edition of 50 (numbered)

"The 'ground truth' of an image encompasses elements of a composition that individuals are most likely to fixate on. Spanning a period of 19 months, these images depict and catalog places and moments that made one individual regret the established reality for which these images provided an escape. In some, the ground truths are obvious - a person or central object; in others, the long format is an invitation to gaze and identify one."

signed and stamped photo of your choice printed on 100% cotton paper

"Images in this edition were made at Marumage Festival, a festival for young unmarried women to pray for a happy marriage. Every April around 40 young women from around Japan gather to dress up in geisha garb with a slight twist. The marumage coiffure was once a longstanding symbol of the married woman, and only married women were permitted to coif their hair that way. Geisha, in the hope they could one day wear it permanently, borrowed it for a single day to pray for happy marriages at the local shrine.

This work is part of European Eyes on Japan 14, project organized by EU-Japan Fest from Tokyo."
