Considered Environment: The Photobooks of Yukio Tabuchi and Camera Mainichi

Considered Environment: The Photobooks of Yukio Tabuchi and Camera Mainichi Past Event

Presented by Centre for Contemporary Photography

Centre for Contemporary Photography, alongside photographer and acb press publisher Rohan Hutchison, based in Melbourne (Naarm/Birrarung-ga), are excited to present Considered Environment: The Photobooks of Yukio Tabuchi and Camera Mainichi.

Considered Environment is centred around pioneering mountaineering photographer Yukio Tabuchi and his lifelong research into the ecology and geology of the Japanese Alps. This work highlighted the advancements in design, printing and technology presented in a series of experimental and articulated page spreads that would then become his ground-breaking publications. Alongside this sits the editorials from Camera Mainichi, a magazine responsible for exposing the first look at content that would then become the most highly regarded and collectible photo-books of all time. The exhibition explores experimental publication design of the era and the future vision of photo-book design that broke away from tradition to create an expanded vision for publication design practices.

On display in CCP’s Gallery 4, the project includes rarely seen books, magazines and prints from the Yukio Tabuchi Memorial Hall, Nagano, Japan, and the National Library of Australia. This program is supported by Apato Furniture, Richmond.
