Kominek Books is happy to present 4 new publications and 2 Special Editions as a result of our latest residency program which has taken place from November-December 2016.

Daisuke Yokota - Berlin - Signed

After publishing Daisuke Yokota’s Toransupearento and GLASS, Kominek Books presents a new body of work from the artist, Berlin; photos taken in Germany’s capital.

The images are typical night city wanderings and exhibit Yokota’s signature experimental processing techniques whilst also demonstrating unconventional shooting methods like re-appropriating thermographic and infrared cameras and rendering the images onto analog film. But overall Yokota’s experiments with extremely low-resolution cameras brings the concept of classical photography to its limits and revises the question of what photography should be.

Hiroshi Takizawa - STRATUM - Signed

Edition of 100 copies

In his sedimentary compendium, Stratum, Takizawa explores organic geological processes by imitating nature’s deposition of matter. Layer upon layer of rock forms this volume, which serves as a topographic catalogue of the surface of Berlin. For Takizawa, the rocks and stones presented in this publication are both relics of a bygone era and historical archives.

The softcover edition is housed in sheets of coloured vinyl with acetate insert. Featuring 100 illustrated pages of detailed sedimentary rock on grey paper, this book is a cornerstone
