Manik Katyal on Momo Okabe “Bible”

Japan – 

“With a crimson red cover, Bible for me is a very dream-like journey of Japanese photographer  Photography feature – Momo Okabe, talking about her disturbed relationships with her two partners, and how she found the feeling of satisfaction and content. Bible is a compilation of Momo’s recent work, some unpublished photos from Miyagi and her trip to India between 2010-13. 
 
I think Momo Okabe’s Bible is a very honest,  sincere and intrusive effort to build a dialogue of her memories in contrast with the intimate relationships with our daily lives. With contingent existence, Momo describes her photobooks as ‘psychological landscapes’ of her own memories.”

Momo Okabe’s ‘Bible’ was also nominated for Kassel Photobook Award 2014 by Manik Katyal.
