Presentation by Mandarake:
" It's been six years since Dildo (2013) and Bible (2014), both published by Session Press in New York. With no advertising or publicity, Momo Okabe's works have become highly acclaimed and have won various national and international awards.
After that, Momo Okabe kept her distance from the contemporary photographic scene and continued to take photographs in her own way, and her pregnancy and birth became an opportunity to announce this work.
This book contains photographs taken in Japan between 2014 and 2019. This great experiment includes friends, regular landscapes, and her pregnancy and birth as an asexual.
