In the fall/winter of 2015, 8 creatives from a broad church of disciplines visited Japan independently of each other. Island x002 is a 260 page visual record of each individual journey compiled as a document of a nation seen through the eyes of a stranger. The images are mis-collated, breaking up each photo and meshing eight individual stories into one. The styles, interests, understanding (or lack of) of each of the contributors juxtapose and compliment each other in a sequence of images that celebrate the country and hint at narratives that overlapped without them knowing.
Island's print and finished technique was conciously chosen to allow the images within to be viewed in full, sitting up against different scenes shown throughout the book.
