Experimental Relationship Vol.1  2007 - 2017

 
 

It's finally here… Experimental Relationship Vol.1 2007-2017

After taking photos of Experimental Relationship for more than 10 years, I've finally decided to put things into a book. I plan to continue this project as long as Moro and I are together. Hopefully, this is the first collection of photos of severals to follow.

Published by Jiazazhi Press in China, this book has 160 pages and 77 photos, designed by myself. The photos are mainly from Experimental Relationship project, with a few from For Your Eyes Only project.

Size:168mm x 260mm x 15mm
Sewn perfect binding, paperback
First edition of 500, published in May 2018
Second editon of 500, published in Jan 2019

Why is the book so yellow?
The book is designed in yellow color, because I want it to be a "yellow book", in Chinese "黄书" means pornography book. ;)
