Hi Steve, I saw Masami Tsuchiya mentioned at his FB page that you are releasing a photo book in spring. A great news! Will it be released in Japan and/or UK? Looking forward to it.

There’s an unspoken rule of etiquette that if, as a professional, you’re asked to contribute towards someone else’s project, you do so in the knowledge that it’s not your place to publicise it or use the insider privileges as a vehicle to publicise yourself or attract traffic to your own social media etc. Masami was perhaps overlooking this by ‘announcing’ there would be a book in spring (which clearly turned out not to be the case), and also by posting a photo he was being asked to approve, without permission. I know how some celebrities incorporate their FB profile into the very fabric of their existence but they should always try to respect those affected who don’t work that way.
