Australian Photo Book Award
19 February 2017

“Astres Noirs” won the Australian Photobook of the Year Award.

If we look at the tradition of Music, ‘Jamming Session’/ Alap is a very fundamental component of the practice and quit unique too as no other medium usually creates that form of synergy. ‘Jamming’ builds a connection between the minds of the performers and flows without any predefined structure or plan. The fellow artists see each others eyes, the body and the movement of the hand, picks up when the other stops and continue. Like entangled particles.

These photographs were created almost in a similar manner, unknowingly of how it may transform. Thanks to Chose Commune who listened to them carefully and willing to create a space/book to record that session.

The first edition is now sold out but a second edition will be released this April. More darker (and with 12 hidden images).
