Presentation by Chose Commune:

" The book Painting reveals 16 unpublished colour photographs by Toshio Shibata, a Japanese photographer who is known for his rigorous and meticulous compositions. The representation of intimate yet spectacular landscapes — natural, and especially artificial — are at the core of Shibata's work.

In keeping with the tradition of painting that Shibata studied in his early years in 1968, this book celebrates the abstraction of beauty. It has been designed in a concertina format that can also be turned into a suspended object — just like a kakemono, a Japanese unframed scroll painting made on paper or silk and displayed as a wall hanging. "

A photobook in the Leporello / Concertina format. Texts in French and English.

20 pages - Hardcover with ribbon on the spine

Shibata, Toshio

Toshio Shibata is a Japanese photographer who studied photography in Belgium. He is specifically interested in imposing architectural constructions and their integration in their surroundings, often natural landscape: simple and geometric shapes such as dams or bridges, of which he usually captures architectural details, in a way that infuses both life and a strange quality in these landscapes. He has published, among other photobooks, "Contacts" (Poursuite, 2013), "Japanscapes" (The Velvet Cell, 2017) and  "Painting" (Chose Commune, 2021). © Portrait taken from the website of  AZITO Online gallery of Japanese Contemporary Art (not credited)

The artist really observes the landscapes with a very sharp eye, and seems to be looking for calm, stability, and permanence... and lays his eyes on the man-made structures and how they integrate or oppose the surrounding...
