Someone you know.

My name is Joshua Matthew Smith. A photographer and aspiring visual artist. This blog is a journey on some of my photographic adventures and a display of what I think art is. I chose the title someone you know simply because I have one of those "faces" people seem to know me wherever I go. Thus the title Someone You know.

A Dream Within A Dream (Poem by Edgar Allan Poe)

annmarcaida:

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we…

December 2013 saw the publication of photographer Jun Abe’s latest collection, a book with the utilitarian title of “2001”.

While the images are over a decade old, this is the “freshest” set of his photography to have been assembled and published under his Vacuum Press imprint.  The book is thicker than any of his others so far and additionally features technically finer printing as well.  Content-wise, we’re invited again to share his worldview, one which I feel is driven less from the desire for a beautiful image, but rather out of a compulsive interest in chance encounters, fleeting glances, and imprisoned animals discovered on the dirty concrete streets of his native Osaka.  

You can order a (signed!) copy at the Japan Exposures bookshop- only 2990 yen- that’s about $30 USD.  click here:  2001 (Signed), by Jun Abe (link features more image samples from the book)

In Tokyo? You can swing by the Sokyusha bookshop in Shinjuku in January to pick up a copy.
