About Victor Sira and Shiori Kawasaki’s Selection for 10x10 Japanese Photobooks
Japanese photographers are pioneers of self-publishing and self-distribution. We like the unique and personal quality of their photobooks, which is a result of their direct engagement in the layout and design process. The books we selected are sensitive to the time in which we live and are designed with their conceptual context in mind.
