We are pleased to introduce you the latest 5 books we published with photographers Hideka Tonomura, Eric, Issei Suda, Tsutomu Yamagata, and Tetsuya Kusu!
die of love is the third book we published with Hideka Tonomura. Limited special edition with a signed cheki is also available. Her exhibition under the same title is currently on view at Zen Foto Gallery until December 22. 

The series depicts a love story woven by all the happiness, sadness, difficulties and ridiculousness in life - which can be considered as Tonomura’s “theatre of love” and she calls it a ''tragicomedy''. In her work, lights stream back and forth in the shadow of uncertainty. "Love has no form," if it does, "let it be a photograph in the very end. It's nothing but paper. Just laugh (...)." said Hideka.

Good Luck Hong Kong by the Tokyo-based Hongkongese photographer Eric. Eric left Hong Kong in 1997 when it was about to be handed back over to China. After spending 20 years in Japan and photographing people from different countries around the world, Eric had a strong urge to focus his lens on where he was born and raised - right up front with the “Hongkongese” people.

The Mechanical Retina on My Fingertips - something special and unexpected Minox works from the early 90s by Issei Suda.

“The Mechanical Retina on My Fingertips” is how Suda named his Minox Camera. Popularly known as a spy camera, it fits in the pocket with a shutter release as light as the blink of an eye. The resulting images developed from 8x11mm negatives are grainy and have a flat perspective. Suda comments that “no other camera ever accompanied my activities so closely.”

This book includes more than 400 works selected from over 600 unpublished images which had been stored in Suda's “A Box of Lingering” for decades

“Sometimes they consciously pose in front of the camera, and at other times they don’t do anything. They know about the spectators’ existence but sometimes they simply forget about how they are being watched.” - Yumi Aota (Critic) 

SURVEILLANCE is the latest project by Tsutomu Yamagata, following his previous series Thirteen Orphans in 2012 and Ten Disciples in 2016. Limited special edition with a signed and matted print is also available. 

Yamagata consistently pays close attention to subjects of the marginalized population and the humanities through his photography. In his new work SURVEILLANCE, young women who are subject to sexual objectification were being automatically photographed by an infrared camera designed for monitoring animals in their homes. Completely setting aside the normal relationship between the photographer and the subject, Yamagata poses a question for the watchers and the watched.

Following American Monuments published in 2016, the new publication AUTO-GRAPH by Tetsuya Kusu was originally created in Fall of 2016 during a road trip Kusu made along the West coast of North America, from Vancouver down to Los Angeles.

He bought a $350 car on Craigslist and equipped it with a camera which shot images out of the passenger window at 15-second intervals in order to record a true documentary, an auto-graph. Each night, Kusu selected one image out of the vast amount of recorded photographs.

The photobook “Auto-Graph” is a collection of these mostly abstract yet concrete photographs, taken on a tour through the US in a period of decisive change, one which would rather aptly end with a car crash.
