[To borrow the book contact Kosuke Okahara]
Ibasyo is a book by Kosuke Okahara. It is a very simple square book and it is rather thick. This is a very thoughtful and important project documenting life of six Japanese girls who have one thing in common: self-injury. Kosuke published six books only dedicating each of them to one girl. The books travel to different people around the world and eventually will go back to Japan. Half of a book are empty pages: an invitation to reflect and share. Ibasyo refers to the physical and emotional space where one can exist.
Kosuke spent a lot of time with the girls and he realized that it was important for them to share their stories, “to see themselves through someone else’s eyes”. Very intimate black and white images of every day life intervened with stories and conversations. My book is dedicated to Aina.
