Comments: Softcover in wrapping paper with a red handprinted linocut title block, first edition, 18,5 x 25,5 cm

This book is presented as two seperate, but interweaved books, one by Daisuke Yakota and another by Max Pinckers. They are presented in wrapping paper with a red handprinted linocut title block.

The catalogue presents also the exhibition views of Yokota+Pinckers' show held at Foto Forum gallery in May 2016. The particular exhibition layout, designed in collaboration with the students of ISIA Urbino and UNIBZ/Faculty of Design and Art, was based on giving to both artists the same amount and type of paper (but their photographs were printed on opposite fibre directions) and wood (used for building the exhibition structures). Max Pinckers’ work was presented vertically, while Daisuke Yokota’s horizontally, both using the same quantity of plywood. No nails or adhesives were used in the exhibition.

Max Pinckers and Daisuke Yokota are both interested in the surfaces of photography, and the limitations the two-dimensional image has in shaping our understanding of the world; make a two-dimensional image and you get a two- dimensional understanding.
Their work is about surface and adding dimensions to it in different ways, but where Pinckers questions the past frameworks of photography and looks at the historical tropes of photography and how they are embedded into our reading of images on a subconscious level, Yokota builds meanings up from the present, layering the past into his images through his repeated exposures and interventions with the primary print.
