dariosolari New gorgeous book from China in @kanimambobooks
Limited edition of 500.
The English name of this photobook was quoted from the Polaroid book of Zhu Mo’s favorite Russian filmmaker Tarkovsky (and his film The Mirror‘s original script had the same title). The series trys to convey the same power from lights in darkness. The series also reminds me of a haiku poem in Akira Kurosawa’s memorial Something Like an Autobiography: “The quiet water from the source, became rip currents, at the falls from the high”. Zhu Mo’s “Bright, Bright Day” series was selected in the 2012 Three Shadows Photography Award and attended the First Beijing Photo Biennial.

dariosolari Another beauty from China available @kanimambobooks Going Home by Muge.
Limited edition of 600.
Muge has a unique autobiographical point of view, different from the hundreds of western photographers who have attempted to capture the essence of this region. He drifts from the city and through the country side mapping people and place, he relates directly to the dislocated people of the Three Gorges region along the banks of the Yangtze River, because it is where he has lived all his life. Chinese people respond differently to a westerner with a camera, Muge can pass unnoticed or at least his presence does not cause a local reaction. He is able to look people in the eye on literally level terms, in so many ways he is part of the people he is representing. - Louise Clements, Artistic Director of QUAD and FORMAT International Photography Festival
