Hiro Tanaka - Dew Dew, Dew Its, Asian Man Records, 2012, Monte Sereno, California

 

Softcover, design and editing by Hiro Tanaka, introduction by Nick Zinner.
"In his first photobook Dew Dew, Dew Its - published by Asian Man Records in 2012 - Japanese-born photographer Hiro Tanaka not only presents a striking first-hand account of what it means to travel across the US with a variety of hardcore and punk bands from show to show but also an intelligent reflection on the American (social and artistic) landscape. Open the book at any page and it will become clear how skillfully he managed to record the heterogeneous realities that make up the everyday life of a band on tour: whether being on stage or among a crowd of fans capturing the chaotic and unpredictable experience of live concerts and backyard parties or sitting on the tour bus while carefully portraying the quiet atmosphere of the morning after - Tanaka is always in close proximity to his subjects." (Text by Jan-Frederik Rust: Art Historian)
