Another nice dream popped out! Our new book Cupboard memories is arrived.
Cupboard memories, by Xia Boqian
This wonderful book by the Chinese artist Xia Boqian displays intimate portraits and delicate frames from several projects.
All spinning around the mental issues and the unsharable secrets, the photographer captured almost always improvised stages and seize the truth of an imperfect world in pictures where the freedom exults for a short time in the visual poetry of love, water, flowers and bodies.
The emotions frozen in time by this book are much more valuables as during the preparation of it, a lot of the archives where irremediably lost, leaving us in doubt about using old scans or previous internet sharing. But it was the story of the book itself: a compilation of imperfect things and moments, that cannot be repeated, so we kept going forward.
The design is still speaking perfectly about the content, high quality art printing on a “white rice” paper, dreamy heather blue hardcover with silver print, a handy but large size, all is nice.
Also the Japanese photographer Keiko Nomura kindly wrote the forewords (written in Japanese, Chinese and English).
The book is available now in Chinese bookstores, and will be available on November 23d for international customers on our web store.
Please have a look.
