"Printed in New Delhi, the 432-page explosion of vibrant imagery is the result of ten years worth of trips to India by Sethi who is American by birth, Indian by heritage. Though there is no set theme, the book touches upon gender, technology (lots of face swapping in there) and creeping westernization (you can spot some incredible rhinestoned bootleg gear imitating brands like Louis Vuitton and Nike). The book's title is the name of a traditional Indian dish, which has various spellings and ever-changing recipes, yet is a staple throughout the country. Similarly, Nick's work in the region...

Khichdi (kitchari) by Nick Sethi featured in It's Nice That

“I’m the first one in my family to be born outside of India so I’ve been travelling there my whole life,” American-born visual artist, Nick Sethi tells It’s Nice That. Having grown up in Floria, his family moved to India for a year in 2007 when he was 17. Despite his heritage, Sethi didn’t grow up speaking Hindi and so the move confronted him with things he didn’t understand but things he wanted to explore further nonetheless. “I started using photography as a way to interact with the country and people,” Sethi recalls. “2007 was a pre-mobile phone...

Blue Period / Last Summer: Arakinema by Nobuyoshi Araki featured in Ravelin Magazine

Friday March 2, 2018

Nobuyoshi Araki doesn’t need me to write about him. He probably doesn’t need anybody to write about him at this point, five hundred or so books in (or is it five thousand?), and a long, serpentine, impressive career behind him (with, one hopes, much more to come). I mean, what is there to say anyway? That he did breakthrough work back in the early ’70s, discovering along with Daido Moriyama just how exhilirating a bunch of blurry photos reproduced on a crappy Xerox machine could be. That in the ’80s he became a rapscallion celebrity photographer, especially in the...

Mao Ishikawa, Red Flower, The Women of Okinawa featured in Liberation as one of the best 10 books of the year

Thursday December 28, 2017

By Clementine Mercier

"En 1974, la photographe Mao Ishikawa, après avoir étudié auprès de Shomei Tomatsu, rentre à Okinawa, l’île où elle a grandi. Elle a 22 ans et travaille dans un bar du quartier noir de Koza pour photographier les GI. Rendue aux Japonais en 1972, Okinawa a été occupée par les troupes américaines après la guerre et les soldats y ont implanté bars et fast-food : dans l’armée comme dans les loisirs, la ségrégation sévit puisque certains établissements et quartiers sont réservés aux soldats noirs. Leur aura d’occupants n’empêche en rien les Japonaises d’Okinawa de tomber folles amoureuses des GI, ce...
