Laura Liverani takes part in the collective exhibition “Photobook as Object” at Reminders Photography Stronghold in Tokyo, showcasing the dummy-books produced during the 2017 photobook workshop conducted by Yumi Goto and Jan Rossel.
“We are aiming to create and design Photobooks to deepen the story with physical elements such as the feeling and touch of the paper, fragrance, the feel of turning the pages, movement of the eyes, size and weight, etc. The work of sorting out various ideas, condensing and translating them onto the pages with iteration after iteration has been a huge undertaking. This year, about half of the participants have come from overseas. With this added diversity of languages and philosophies, the discussions between the lecturers and the participants was richer, and forced a push towards discovery and improvement of the elements lacking in one’s own book had it been done alone.”
