CCP: Considered Environment: the Photobooks of Yukio Tabuchi and Camera Mainichi
Considered Environment: the Photobooks of Yukio Tabuchi and Camera Mainichi was exhibited by the Centre for Contemporary Photography and Naarm/Melbourne based photographer and ACB Press publisher Rohan Hutchinson as part of Melbourne Design Week 2022.
Considered Environment is centred around pioneering mountaineering photographer Yukio Tabuchi, and his lifelong research into the Japanese Alps, its ecology, and geology. This work highlighted the advancements in design, printing, and technology, in return presented in a series of experimental and articulated page spreads that would then become his ground-breaking publications. Alongside this sits the editorials from Camera Mainichi, a magazine responsible for exposing the first look at content that would then become the most highly regarded and collectible photobooks of all time. The exhibition explores experimental publication design of the era, the future vision of photobook design that broke away from tradition and in return created an expanded vision for publication design practices.
