トークイベントのお知らせ Talk Event at Seikosha Book in Kyoto

吉田亮人写真集「The Absence of Two」の刊行を記念し、トークイベントを開催します。

吉田は宮崎県に住む88歳の祖母と23歳の従兄弟の生活を撮り続けていました。

「そう遠くない将来いつか終わるこの二人の時間を記録していく」

と、当時のエッセイで書いているように、祖母の死をもって終わりを迎えるはずだったこの物語は、従兄弟の突然の自死という形をもって打ち切られてしまいます。
本トークイベントではこの物語にまつわる話はもちろん、2人が共に生きていた姿が写された幾葉もの写真を拾い集め、写真集にまとめたその制作の裏側などを、装丁家の矢萩多聞氏と話していきます。

開催日 2017年11月5日(日) 時間19時-21時

会場 誠光社

定員 30名さま

参加費 1500円+1ドリンクオーダー

In commemoration of the publication of Akihito Yoshida  photo book “The Absence of Two”, a talk event will be held.

Yoshida kept taking pictures of his 88-year-old grandmother living in Miyazaki Prefecture and his 23-year old cousin.

“We will record the time of these two people who will not be far in the future someday”

And as I wrote in the essay of the time, this story which was supposed to end with grandmother’s death will be cut off in the form of cousin’s sudden suicide.
In this talk event, not only the stories related to this story, but also the photographs of the leaves of two people who were living together were gathered and the back side of the production summarized in a photograph collection, etc.
I will talk with Mr. Tamon Yahagi of the Book designer.

Akihito Yoshida’s Original handmade Photobook  “The Absence of Two”  publication commemoration Exhibition

Born in 1980, Yoshida Akihito resigned from his occupation as a primary school teacher to pursue a career in photography, and since then has continued to produce works that earnestly confront the intentions and emotions that lie within human beings. In recent years, he has self-published two photobooks on the theme of “what it means to work.” The first is Brick Yard (2014), a documentation of seasonal workers at a brick factory in Bangladesh who perform manual labor without the help of machines. The second, Tannery, captures the harsh working environment inside a tanning plant in Bangladesh. There is always a certain warmth in Yoshida’s gaze as he follows his subjects. He conveys a sense of human dignity that never ceases to prevail even under such harsh working conditions, allowing it to emerge as a radiant ray of light.

Together with this exhibition, only 10 copies of the photobook “The Absence of Two” (limited to 111 copies / photographers’ own hand-bound original photo books) will be accepted for booking. It will only be accepted at stores.
In addition, on November 5 (Saturday), we will hold a talk event with Mr. Yagi Tatami, a binding expert.  Please come.
