Presentation by Editions du LIC:
"Played represents the first solo project by Yoshi Kametani following his recent successful collaborations with Daisuke Yokota and IPG Project. A conceptual work in the form of a hybrid book (part photobook, part novella) based on events that take place in the criminal underworld of New York City.
The protagonist, bored with his mundane existence and day to day routine, decides one night to walk aimlessly through mid-town Manhattan. Serendipitously ending up in Times Square, a tasteless corporate Disneyland and haven to seedy business, drugs, prostitution and crime, he finds himself intrigued by the area and begins being drawn back night after night. Unexpectedly, he soon gets to know some of the regulars who hang around the streets and eventually meets a curiously compelling character. Quickly befriended, the protagonist is taken on a journey down a convoluted path riddled with deception. Hustle after hustle, lie after lie, a string of events leads to an unforeseen, undesirable and potentially dangerous situation.
Designed to be taken apart and reassembled - providing a temporary exhibition to accompany the narrative - Played comes loose bound in a protective PVC dust jacket with a saddle sewn booklet held in place with an elastic cord."

Publisher's presentation: "Between Us And The Sea invites the reader on a mythical journey from Houston, Texas to Big Sur, California. Not a road trip as such, more the photographic record of countless escapes across country in an endless quest to reach the freedom of the sea. And yet, this is not a record of a physical landscape but of an emotional one....
