Session press

SESSION PRESS is an independent publisher devoted to introducing new work by emerging artists. We function as a collaborative forum for photographers, designers, writers and editors in producing original artist's books and multiples. By bridging the gap between the bound (book) and unbound (fine art) print worlds, we seek to reevaluate traditional models of creation, production and distribution. SESSION PRESS was founded in January 2011 in New York City by Miwa Susuda, photo book specialist at Dashwood Books since 2006 and contributing writer to Fraction Magazine Japan. For all inquiries, please contact us at [email protected]

A luminous yellow haze hangs over a road; a purple hue distorts the colouration of a nude body. Momo Okabe’s photographs are kaleidoscopic, distorting our conceptions with every turn of the page. I’ve been assured her new book, Bible, has been hard work, though having received the praise of Nobuyosh…

Japanese Photobook Review: File 6: "Bible" by Momo Okabe, 2014 (reviewed by Betsy Clifton)

My favorite book review of the Day, Betsy Clifton's Bible by Momo Okabe. 岡部さんのバイブルが、ダシュウッドの同僚のベッティーさんから、レビュー頂けました。是非ご参照下さい。

Betsy's review is sincere, honest and insightful. Brilliant! Thank you very much, Betsy. My favorite part of her ending lines. Pls check it out!: Since I first finished Bible it continued to swim around my head and churn up a poignant realizations of all how so few things are our own that we can really talk about. Take our designated terms — a mother, a father, a family — words that describe what we already know as feeling above all. The language in Bible — of a boy, a girl — struck this same cord as a visceral dichotomy, headlining what photography handles that words cannot. Okabe has brought a new breed of personification forward to a Japanese subculture long deserving of a platform. Her pulse between landscape and body imagery is not for the faint-of-heart, Okabe’s intimate access to gender identity (both pre and postoperative) is as urgent as it is courageous. Her rhythm continues to kick up the sediment of my mind once settled in the overtly intellectualized practice so prevalent in today’s contemporary photography scene, and begins to reposition critical perspectives towards compassion, intimacy, and camaraderie. Momo Okabe is enlightened over the weight of the history and tradition that stands before her, and keeps dear a why to live that endures almost any how.

Dazed and Confused Magazine review for Momo Okabe:

Thank you very much, mostly importantly my boss, David Strettell and dearest friend/co-worker, Betsy Clifton, Chris Simmonds, Giles Cassels, Steven Sicular, Marc Feustel, Helka Aleksdóttir, Kohey Kanno, Kate Pantling, Lauren Ford, Trey Taylor, Owen Myer, Takashi Yamazumi, Mika Murai, Tom Claxton, Hiroki Yasukagawa, Atsushi Hamanaka, Takayuki Kobayashi, Nicolas Dusart, Brooke Irwin, Jan Larsen, Alessandro Calandra, Tiane Doan Na Champassak, Russet Lederman, Hisako Motoo and all my dearest friends!

Without your support, Momo's Bible couldn't have been published. Dazed's writer, Kate stated at the end of her beautiful review: Among the moments of devastating sadness and alienation, there are glimmers of hope in her work. Shafts of light, big skies and rich hues provide relief from cruel reality,,,,,Perhaps Okabe's work can help transform prejudices and preconceptions. Her sensitive tough highlights the complexity of the individual human experience, reminding us that we're all connected in our deepest emotions.

この、レビューのお話を頂いた際、デイズのライターのケイトさんから100程細かい質問を受けました。デイズ級の有名カルチャー雑誌からの取材でしたが、終始上から目線で接すること無く、作品に対しての敬意とライターとしての品位と誠意を感じました。この記事が出来上がるまで、多くの方から温かい支援を授かり出版まで辿りつくことが出来ました。心から御礼を申し上げます。
