SUPER LABO - new photobooks from PHOTOBOOKSTORE UK

Featured in PHOTOBOOKSTORE's October newsletter (No 2) is a range of edgy new titles from Japanese publisher SUPER LABO.

Marrakech by Daido Moriyama looks sure to continue the SUPER LABO’s successful run.  Featuring images from Moriyama’s trip to the fabled city over 25 years ago, Marrakech is presented in a very unusual two books within one design, which in turn our housed in a slipcased hardback.  A limited edition of 500 copies, Marrakech looks sure to sell out sooner rather than later, and in stock now HERE.

Chris Shaw’s photos are currently paired with Moriyama’s in an exhibition at Tate Britain, and his new book Weeds Of Wallasey is SUPER LABO’s second release of the month. Weeds of Wallasey is a series of black and white photographs taken on the Wirral in the Bidston Valley. As Chris Shaw explains, “ I observed and documented the battle between nature and a post industrial blight, to express my own feelings about a landscape I grew up in, my roots, my weeds…”.  A slipcased edition of 500 copies.  Weeds of Wallasey is in stock now HERE.  

Similarly elegantly presented, Stilll by Terri Weifenbach is her second book with SUPER LABO following last year’s 17 days.  This slipcased impeccably printed hardback contains images taken in the suburban areas of the photographers hometown, Washington DC.  See our video preview of Stilll, and order your copy of  this limited edition book edition book HERE.  

You can see all of PHOTOBOOKSTORE's SUPER LABO titles (which also include recent release Make by Shomei Tomastsu) and a number of out of print books HERE.
