We present the first book series by the Decent Supply label under the name of “aesthetic documentations”. Volume one features 50 black and white photos from the Republic of Korea, the People’s Republic of China, and Japan shot on 35mm film by photographer Miro Leon Bucher.
Words by the Artist
Starting the preparation for shooting for this project, I decided to bring my beaten up Minolta AF-S Talkman, that I’ve bought for 30.000 Korean Won in a small second-hand shop in Seoul, to my travels to document daily life. All photos are shot on Ilford HP5 Plus, mostly pushed by 1 stop. The final selection features images taken in Japan [Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara], the People’s Republic of China [Shanghai, Beijing], and the Republic of Korea [Seoul, Daegu].
The book features 50 black and white images, shot on Ilford HP5 Plus 35mm film, printed on 170 gsm natural/uncoated paper, and comes in the size of 21 cm by 29,7 cm, is approximately 7mm thick, and weighs about 350 grams. All images have been developed and scanned by FotoMaru (포토마루) in Seoul, South Korea. Printing has been handled by a renowned British printing house.
We offer tracked domestic shipping (Germany) and tracked international shipping [remember that customs duty might apply in the country of arrival]:

Really well thought out and beautiful project. Loved the tote bag as well.

A beautiful art piece.
The Moments captures by the camera are creating such a vast place away but at the same time they seem so near. A peaceful silence is inside those photos. They make it possible to forget the surrounding and just be at the place you look at.
I am deeply impressed.
The bag became my favourite within a very short time. So it is not necessary to write, how happy I am with it. But I want to point out, that the work is very nicely done. Perfect, one might say. And in addition, it is made from 100% fairtrade organic cotton!
