Despite its 12 years of consecutive participation in Paris Photo, the world's largest photography fair, the independent photobook label "M" and its platform "bookshop M" cannot participate this year, due to the ongoing global pandemic. Therefore, they have decided to relocate the fair from Paris to Tokyo, Daikanyama, and will showcase a special group show at Daikanyama T-Site.
Ai Iwane will also participate in this fair with her newly released book "A NEW RIVER," and will exhibit a new print from the series, alongside major photographers including Daido Moriyama, Katsumi Omori, and Sakiko Nomura. We look forward to how the gallery wall will be looking like. Please do not miss this special exhibition!
