A one-day book printing show at Le Bal with the aim of producing 200 unique books with Daido Moriyama. Together with Après Midi Lab, and their Risograph printer, we presented 50 images from a new series called Ikebukuro 2013, taking it’s name from the part of Tokyo where Moriyama has been living the last 20 years. Participants in the workshop could choose around 30 images to make a book in their own edit, creating a unique publication. All books are signed.
