About the exhibition： This exhibition is presented by the "PHOTOBOOK AS OBJECT" Workshop participant photographers, instructed by Yan Russell and Yumi Goto held in May 2017.
We are aiming to create and design Photobooks to deepen the story with physical elements such as the feeling and touch of the paper, fragrance, the feel of turning the pages, movement of the eyes, size and weight, etc.
The work of sorting out various ideas, condensing and translating them onto the pages with iteration after iteration has been a huge undertaking.
This year, about half of the participants have come from overseas. With this added diversity of languages and philosophies, the discussions between the lecturers and the participants was richer, and forced a push towards discovery and improvement of the elements lacking in one’s own book had it been done alone.
Presented here are the dummy-books from rough drafts to recent developments made during the workshop. These artworks become the starting point, continuing to evolve and improve while questioning oneself if this is “The artwork I wanted to create”.
We look forward to enjoying and spending time discussing and exchanging ideas about the journey of photography, achievements and failures of creating an artwork with all of you. Please do not hesitate to come and join us at the venue.

Away From Home is a series of photographs that will be exhibited at fortyfivedownstairs gallery in Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition will explore the dualities that surround the idea of home: between presence & absence, permanence & impermanence and belonging & displacement. The project engages in the lived experiences of liminality from the perspectives of the transnational diaspora from Burma. Away From Home investigates themes of migration, belonging, place and notions of home. These works aim to develop new understandings of the multidimensional complexities of being a refugee – both home and away – and expand on longstanding traditions of documentary photographic practice. At a time of increasing displacement and familial upheaval, it is important we take notice of how people get on in transcultural familial situations or how difference is lived on the ground.
