68TH STREET - Yoshihiko Ueda

To coincide with the opening of Yoshihiko Ueda's photography exhibition “68th Street: Memories of Light” the photography book 68TH STREET is now available.

68th Street: Memories of Light captures on monochrome photographic paper the light that is photography’s destiny, and was Ueda’s challenge, as he followed—his motif a single sheet of white paper—light falling from the window of his room on New York’s 68th Street—waxing and waning, changing in form from moment to moment—and the shadows this created.
After shooting, these images of fathomless light and shadow were promptly entrusted in New York to art director and old acquaintance Fabien Baron, and assembled into this gem of a book on which the timeline of the shoot is etched in the track of the light. This is in fact the first collaboration between Ueda and Fabien Baron in 25 years, since the magazine Visionaire.

The culmination of a project to document Japan's native horse breeds, this book contains around 60 portraits of the eight remaining breeds around the country.
From Dosanko to Kiso, Noma, Tsushima, Misaki, Tokara, Miyako and Yonaguni, how have the native ponies surviving in Japan since the earliest times been involved with people in these places, and how have they added value to their lives?
For her latest endeavor, Charlotte Dumas journeyed to all eight locations to trace the history of these fascinating animals, and capture their everyday lives in intimate detail.

M.Ganges - Yoshihiko Ueda

To coincide with the opening of Yoshihiko Ueda's photography exhibition “M.Ganges” the photography book M.Ganges is now available.

'Occasionally I began to sense myself not gazing at somebody in the photo, but seeing myself in the photo I'd taken. In my line of sight: my memories, or rather, in fact, memories from a distant past that for some reason did not seem to be my own. Spying an old dog I discern the sorrowful scent of death, and at the same time, that dog could almost be me; sometimes it feels like the landscape that looks dim and hazy as she totters along is no longer hers, that she may be seeing far distant memories. Perhaps one can see distant memories by sniffing the stench of death; the hazy light and shadow, color and form being all that remain, an unfathomable feeling of nostalgia suffuses my heart with stunning intensity, a sudden fit of weeping assailing me. Lamentation and delight and uncertain memories become light and color without contour, embracing me. The memories of dogs, of birds, of trees, of rivers, of mountains: my chest tightens with a wistful pang at the memories of each and every thing in this world. Photographs are memories of gazes, of faraway places, of people and times that have passed.'

──Yoshihiko Ueda

From forest to river, sea to people... “M.Ganges,” the last in Yoshihiko Ueda's M series tracing primeval memories, offers an irresistible smorgasbord of 61 carefully chosen images.

1972~ - Kozo Miyoshi

To coincide with the opening of Kozo Miyoshi’s photography exhibition “1972~,” the photography book 1972~ is now available.

For Miyoshi, who continues to travel widely as if enticed by the images in his mind, chance encounters are an inevitability. Wherever he trains his lens, there seem to be subjects that linger with carefree expressions, as if having realized their own fate. So fine are his prints, which conjure a quiet monochrome world, that one can almost hear their presence and breathing.
The catalogue contains 69 pictures that offer fresh insights into the origins of Kozo Miyoshi.
