‘WE OUI!’ BY FUMIKO IMANO
26/02/2017
News
DoBeDo contributor Fumiko Imano has released a new book, ‘WE OUI!’ published by Little Big Man Books
 
Imano explains: “Twins” was born by accident. When I came back to Japan from London, I started making twins pictures to cheer myself up. I was already 27 and once again I was an alien in my own country. Living as a proper Japanese lady with responsibility was very heavy burden; it was hard for me to accept. So I enjoyed making child like twins to make my life better. I thought: “If I have a twin sister, I won’t be lonely, and I will be happy living in any environment together.” It actually makes me laugh when I see myself becoming a twin by cutting and pasting. It somehow encourages me to live in this so-called “developed country”. 
 
‘WE OUI!’ is available to buy here, and will also be on sale at Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair 2017 this weekend, 24 – 26 February 2017.

‘HOMES’ BY HARLEY WEIR
14/11/2016
News

DoBeDo contributor Harley Weir has released her first book, ‘Homes‘ published by Loose Joints.

‘Homes’ shows photographs made between 17 and 28 October in the migrant and refugee camps of Calais. Taken immediately before and during the clearing of this provisional settlement, Weir’s images bear witness to the humanity and ingenuity of those living there – constructing the domestic and familiar against a backdrop of displacement.

The photographs show us the homes and private spaces of the camp. In the face of oppression and indifference from those most poised to provide assistance, Homes shows a stubborn commitment to the small, personal spaces of humanity within the Calais camp.

All proceeds from the publication of this book will be donated to La Cimade, a French charity committed to protecting and defending the human rights of refugees and migrants. This publication is available exclusively online.

Homes is now sold out. A special edition of Homes is still available, published in an edition of 60 and including a hand-printed image by the artist.
