Iann Vol 9: Asian Bookmakers Society

Publisher Iann


Idea Code 18223

This issue of the contemporary art photography magazine from Asia introduces eight figures who are actively involved in the independent art publishing world. It focuses on how artistry in itself is mandatory in the progression within Asia’s so-called publishing ecosystem, taking examples from Taiwan, China, Korea, and Japan. The cover story features Japanese photographer Go Itami, and a focus piece examines Korean photographer Seung-Woo Yang. While the former artist deals with how attributes of contemporary photography can be presented in book form, the latter, who also studied in Japan, pursues an authentic, documentary-style photobook.
