Practice Theory was commissioned to design the identity, exhibition graphics and spatial layout of Between Love & Death: Diary of Nobuyoshi Araki. Presented as part of the 6th Singapore International Photography Festival, the show traces universal stories of love, death and sentiments told in a confessional diaristic style by Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki.
The design of the limited edition zine that accompanied the exhibition was inspired by Araki’s understanding of the medium: ‘Photography is copying’. By appropriating the reproduction method of Araki’s first photo books, visitors were invited to photocopy a series of portraits from Tokyo Love before sequencing and binding the zine themselves. This made them active participants, giving birth to new and unique relationships across the pages, and breathing new life into Araki’s diaristic photographs.
