The greatest myth of history is not about being born then gradually die but the fact that we are constantly experiencing death in its perpetuity.

–––– Notes from 1993.8.19

Established Taiwanese artist Jui-Chung Yao selected from a bulk amount of his unpublished black and white photographs taken in the last twenty years, collaborating with independent publishing house Waterfall for the photo book Something Blue. 50 photographs are included in this book, whose bookbinding design, made of artificial leather, is inspired by the vintage photo album. Included in the second part of the book are excerpts from his notebooks, which give readers a glimpse to the artist’s own personal fleeting memories. The sense of loss and evanescence within the missing pages and chapters, on the other hand, is palpable and resonates with those who share similar life experiences.

歷史最大的神話並非我們生下然後死去,而是我們一直都在死去。

–––– 1993  8.19

藝術家姚瑞中集結二十年來從未發表之黑白攝影作品,與獨立出版品牌Waterfall合作,推出自傳色彩濃厚的攝影集《小幻影》。全書收錄50 幅作品,以舊式相冊為裝幀設計的靈感,外覆塑膠皮料,並從姚瑞中數目龐大的扎記本中,挑選出數張內頁重新印刷。讀者捧在手上的,不僅僅是該位藝術家的流年記事,也同屬於我們這一代人所失落的篇章,持續亡佚、流竄。
