A Japanese Gathering

Remote farm village Nachikatsuura, Japan

On Collecting

Issue One: the papers

Issue One is the first of five issues by Store & Archive.  The series of papers aims to establish a dialogue on "the everyday".  On Collecting includes a range of photo essays, discourse from within the Store & Archive studio, and text contributions by fellow creatives.

Issue One is a limited edition of 50 handmade publications printed on 130gsm drawing paper, with an additional literary supplement printed on 49gsm newsprint hand stitched into the issue.

We aim to establish a dialogue across creative fields, whilst exploring some of our work within the studio in order to give it some contextual grounding.  We wish to explore a lifestyle where being creative is fundamental to those things that we see, do and explore in our everyday. 

A day of adventure and discovery in April 2017 under the emerging blossoms of the cherry trees; a small gathering looked to connect with the landscape and all things new.  This gathering took place at an abandoned village in a remote forest in Japan.
