About Yasunori Hoki‘s Selection for the 10×10 Reading Room:
My selection, with one exception, reflects recent photobook projects published by either Super Labo, my small publishing venture, or one of my new photobook imprints. As an independent publisher, I embrace the challenges of bringing contemporary works by Japanese photographers to both western and Japanese audiences, and experimental photobook projects by western photographers to Japan.
