Description of book: There’s something nice and not too cryptic about the title of Charlie Hillhouse’s latest zine. “Waiya” is the Japanese pronunciation of ‘wire’. These are photographs of electric lines from a trip taken to Tokyo and its surrounds. They are taken with the curious puzzlement of a traveller out of his depth. It is not only a travel document, but it also serves as a published documentation of the risograph printing process. The artist has manipulated the effect of the photographs with the colour changing of a riso ink drum.
