2011 / 07 / 18

Bananafish Books is very proud to announce it’s first publication, A r i a, a new photobook by Chen Siran which is also the first book of the photographer.

A r i a: melody of air.

There are 30 images accompanied by three letters written by Siran. Together they are trying to relocate a passing past. Each small peculiarity indicates its weak and fake side, while all creates a countless power to face reality, an infinite world around us.

The book is released under the name of our publisher: A Perfect Book. More info please visit:

Chen Siran is a female photographer currently living and working in the city of Beijing.
