MOMO OKABE »BIBLE« – selected by MANIK KATYAL

»With a crimson red cover, BIBLE for me is a very dream-like journey of Japanese photographer Momo Okabe, talking about her disturbed relationships with her two partners, and how she found the feeling of satisfaction and content. BIBLE is a compilation of Momo’s recent work, some unpublished photos from Miyagi and her trip to India between 2010–13. I think Momo Okabe’s BIBLE is a very honest, sincere and intrusive effort to build a dialogue of her memories in contrast with the intimate relationships of our daily lives. Momo describes her photobooks as ‘psychological landscapes’ of her own memories.«
