Detail from the newspaper «Dummies»


Japanese photographer Kazuma Obara makes books, by hand. To get there he starts with dummies. They help to control taken decisions, to question form and format oft he content, to consider sequence and texture. Sometimes he produces a bunch of dummies to find an approach to the final product.

On Monday, July 3, 2017, from 6:30 pm Kazuma Obara will present at the SCHWARZER MONTAG his «Dummies», that he produced during developing «Silent Histories» but also his most recent project «30», which consists ov two book, «Everelasting» and «Exposure» and the reproduction of a newspaper.
