Description of book: Playground is a sample of images from an ongoing project by photographer Emily Shur documenting her travels in Japan over the past ten years. Rather than photograph the country through the distant eyes of a foreigner, Shur’s pictures focus on quiet and intimate moments illustrating a sincere connection to a place that’s been heavily photographed over time. The images in Playground celebrate both the majestic and the banal. They’re quiet and expressive, thoughtful and playful. Playground is printed in a limited edition of 300 copies, all signed and numbered by the artist.

The best thing about self-publishing: Having full control over every aspect of your book!
