This limited edition publication is the outcome of a residency Drew Pettifer completed over two months in Tokyo in mid-2014. Through these photographs Pettifer examines different codes of masculinity and gender that exist in contemporary Japanese society in relation to young Japanese men. These straight and queer subjects became friends with the artist through extended visits to the artist’s studio during his residency. The final 34 images were selected from more than 800 frames the artist shot in his typical intimate, snapshot style on 35mm colour film.

The book is limited to 100 copies, each of which is signed and numbered.
