Rites of Passage

Rites of Passage is an artist’s publication comissioned by Spanish editorial Mad Libro.

The book is a collection of analogue photography and drawings documenting a month long trip across Japan - A trip started in Tokyo, going throught Kyoto, Arashiyama, Mt Fuji & Hakone, the more rural island Shikoku, Hiroshima, down to semi tropical Okinawa - after many years away, by the half Japanese-half English artist brought up in Europe.

Assembled in a sometimes abstract or surreal collage forms, the images seek to be an alternative and personal travelogue.  Through an intimate lense, it documents a travel juxaposing memory with present, and a  dreamlike exploration of symbols and rituals, whether man made or natural.
