PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 for ARTS, CULTURE & LIFESTYLE

Leaf Peeper

Leaf Peeper, the second title from Rokov Publishing. It features photography by former Portsmouth University Student Tim Bowditch and a short story by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau.

Tim Bowditch is a photographer and film maker. His recent work includes Firedive (2011), a film about the tidal swimming pools of Guernsey; Afghanistan Blueys (2011), a collaborative project with his brother who is a bandsman in the Royal Marines; and Hindland (2012), a series of large scale photographs of the hidden architecture beneath the M25, made in collaboration with Nick Rochowski.

Leaf Peeper is a book about “Momijigari”, the Japanese tradition of visiting scenic places in autumn to see the leaves of the trees as they turn red. Tim Bowditch’s photos follows a Japanese man on the tourist trail around an Imperial villa in Kyoto as he takes endless pictures of the darkening leaves. A text by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau responds to Bowditch’s photos with a story of insight, ignorance and blocked sinuses.

The book will launch on 27th June and is available on on the Rokov Publishing website.

You can see more of Tim’s work on his website, Twitter, Tumblr and Vimeo accounts.
