    Book details

Global expansion and growing local economies have allowed the obsession with photography to sweep throughout the Asian continent. Japan was the first in the region to fall in love with photography and most western readers are already familiar with names such as Araki, and Rinko Kawauchi's recent nomination for the Deutsche Borse Prize has sparked huge international interest in Asia's most popular art form. Now, South Korea, China, and Southeast Asia are emerging as powerhouses in the photographic realm. This beautiful, up-to-date volume documents the growing culture of photography as an art form in Asia, including often overlooked countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Singapore. As well as short essays on the status of photography by region, each artist is introduced through spreads of their work, short biographies and personal statements given exclusively for this unique book. These stunning images speak volumes about one of the most exciting developments in contemporary photography.
