Go There by Japanese street photographer Gen Sakuma. “For me, wandering about the streets, pointing my camera and pressing the shutter button on what I encounter there, may be quite like how I collected insects as a young child, absorbed in the hunt until past sundown”. Sakuma captures curious moment on the streets of Tokyo. Beautifully produced by Rosin Books: embossed clothbound hardcover, distinct endpaper, great printing.

Drawing on the use of the camera to survey the topography of the American landscape, Volunteer shows us the landscape of a country shaped by war. Here, we are shown the placeless, suburban centres of the United States where the military seeks out new recruits from those that dwell on the margins of the American Dream. Made of, and around, the various temporary recruiting centres and offices established in order to gather potential volunteers from a specific area, these photographs depict the frayed landscapes of a society drained by the constant demands of fighting wars in distant lands.
