Jury Statement Incipient Strangers by Yoshikatsu Fujii really is a startling and uncompromising pushing of the possibilities of the book form. It utilized the idea of a very very personal story of the divorce of his parents, elaborating this narrative thread unpicking it through a very clever process of collage. It’s an exciting and challenging book that it’s attending to push the boundaries whilst maintaining a rigor in relation to the practice of the media.
