LOST HOME - a collaboration

It's strange how things happen. Paris Photo 2012, a chance meeting with Japanese SUPER LABO publisher Yasunori Hoki and Washington based photographer Terri Weifenbach. We talked about the collaboration I'd initiated in 2010 called ONE DAY and a work I'd made with NZ poet Sam Sampson called Exclusivity. One thing led to another and what we've loosely been calling The Japan Project was born.

Japanese writer and film maker Nobuyuki Isshiki has written a prose poem called LOST HOME. Ten photographers will respond with a bookwork which will be published by SUPER LABO in a boxed set and launched at Paris Photo 2013.

In alphabetical order here is the list of participants: Harvey Benge, JH Engstrom, Roe Ethridge, Takashi Homma, Ron Jude, Daido Moriyama, Christian Patterson, Slavica Perkovic, Bertien van Manen, Terri Weifenbach.

Watch this space and see you in Paris in November.
