<h3>I am pleased to announce the publication of my 1st book<strong>&nbsp;&quot;Giri Giri&quot;</strong>,&nbsp;about contemporary Japan, that extreme East seen from a quirky and somewhat &quot;kichigai&quot; 気違い [crazy] angle.</h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fplayer.vimeo.com%2Fvideo%2F516150192%3Fapp_id%3D122963&amp;dntp=1&amp;display_name=Vimeo&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F516150192&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.vimeocdn.com%2Fvideo%2F1068789976_1280.jpg&amp;key=cb39d84f05d8439bbe96012f078e02b0&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=vimeo" title="Vimeo embed" width="500"></iframe></div> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3><strong>THE PROJECT</strong></h3> <p><strong>Giri Giri</strong> is a game of representations on the images conveyed by Japan through different societal archetypes. A series of clicks on the clich&eacute;s of the &quot;exotic&quot; imaginary that has been built up for more than a century following the opening of the Meiji era. We meet an old yakuza who repents every day by going to the local evangelical chapter, a gambler after a malaise in a deafening pachinko game room, or the students of a posh Kyoto college during their kendo training...</p> <p style="margin-left:40px; text-align:right">&quot;All the great fictional films tend to be documentaries, just like all great documentaries tend to be fictional.&nbsp;[&hellip;]&nbsp;And when you choose one, you inevitably end up with the other at the end of the road.&rdquo;</p> <p style="margin-left:40px; text-align:right">Jean-Luc Godard</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/720162/d0ec5fb6-2ef6-4a41-9bb6-7ddb2807a403.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>These images are interspersed with texts in English / French version&nbsp;by <strong>Agathe Parmentier</strong> &amp; myself. Agathe is a very imaginative writer&nbsp;living in Japan and regularly writing&nbsp;about Japanese pop culture for Japan magazines [Tempura, Pen Magazine, etc.]. She&nbsp;is the author of a biographical essay &quot;Why&nbsp;Tokyo&quot; (2016), a book that tells a lot about Japanese society in a light-hearted way and that made me want to ask her to collaborate with me on <strong>Giri Giri</strong>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Beyond the unusual or aesthetic aspect of the images, there is also <strong>a real documentary ambition</strong> by placing each image in the context of Japanese society, as shown by the first two pages of captions (14 pages in all!):</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/722627/ed757515-762f-4cbe-a1bd-a4f3e22d13f1.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3><strong>PUBLICATIONS &amp; AWARDS</strong></h3> <p>This work has been extensively <strong>published</strong> in France and abroad [Geo, La Repubblica, Stern, Le Courrier International, Le Monde, China Newsweek, The Economist, La Vie, El Pais ...]. As well as presentations &amp; interviews on important websites like Fisheye or 9lives in France &amp; Landscape stories abroad.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/718239/c89e4f67-d6f1-4839-9912-05a057270055.gif" width="100%" /></p> <p>This project also allowed me to win the <strong>Sony World Photography Award</strong> in 2019 as &quot;Best photographer&quot; in the Travel category. As well as the Special Mention of the <strong>Roger Pic Award</strong>, which was presented to me by Magdalena Herrera, former President of the <em>World Press Photo</em> Jury in 2018.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/720163/55bb1779-66b2-4661-8daa-db08a1d0869e.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3><strong>BOOK SPECIFICATIONS</strong></h3> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/722390/260fc568-b8b8-4a9a-bfec-d9015932f3c6.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/726966/e0cf8812-e86d-4401-b812-5423695bcb8d.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/726963/ba3f0a39-0da5-44ff-b0c1-68f16e3860fd.jpg" width="100%" /></p>

Allocation of funds

<p>All the money raised will be given to my publisher, <strong>Les &Eacute;ditions de Juillet</strong>, to <strong>cover the printing and production costs</strong> of the book. The cost price is very high compared to the selling price, which we wanted to keep affordable, and thanks to you we won&#39;t lose money, that&#39;s something (but we won&#39;t make any either!).</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/722611/83ea5ddf-cb69-491c-9407-47e4bd6935ff.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/722612/4ac356be-8c46-4b2e-8b4e-2fde4e8c0983.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3><strong>TIMING</strong></h3> <p>The book will be shipped to pre-purchasers by the end of May 2021 at the latest by Colissimo with tracking. Then it will live its public life in bookshops from June 2021.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <hr /> <p>I would like to launch a big ARIGATO GOZAIMASU [ THANK YOU ] in advance. Thanks to you, this project has a chance of being published in the best conditions for printing and distribution. And beyond that, it is a strong message of support for the independent publishing sector.</p> <h3>By pre-ordering your book, you simply allow it to exist!</h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Any questions?
