went to see “girldroid : girl’s fiction” at jimbocho gallery a couple of days ago – a joint photo exhibition of moira kuchikaseya and tama murata (adopting the surname of ken-ichi murata for whom she models for and goes fishing with) – first time to properly meet tama for me, tho she was at my osaka rubber doll exhibition – vibrant personality and even cuter in real life (i’m in love, haha!) – gag fetishist moira has always been a sort of soul-mate – nice to watch her popularity grow and see the stream of moira clones entering the gallery while i hung about there – exhibition on for another week…

A5 book of photos by atsushi tani (or “a sushi tank” as my spellchecker seems to prefer) published by atelier third – i spy the work of etsuko miura here too
just for the hell of it – i don’t often succumb to this trendy tumblr reblogging type thing – but minori here attracted my interest – and perhaps is of baby art blog interest – yeah i know it’s very chocolate box and the sorta style my mum (aged 70 or so) would probably like – but, hey, i was always quite a big kana fan – (and not much of a fan of the guruloli trend) – pix swiped from here – minori’s own web site here – and youtube clip here
in her own words: “…I recently had a photoshoot with my friend Gary Crozier who is a pretty good photographer. He takes pictures of his models and makes them look like broken dolls…” – and post-hoc asks if okay to use my work (which of course it always is for these homage photos!) and if okay for gary to upload on his site (here!) – again no objection, it’s more his work than mine : )
