Daido Moriyama: MirageDaido Moriyama: Mirage

Published by MMM.
Edited and text by Hisako Motoo.

Mirage is the fourth of Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama's limited-edition publications with MMM. For this volume, Moriyama (born 1938) unearthed a selection of previously unpublished color slides from the 1970s. The slides have faded over the past four decades, and this volume reproduces them in their present fragile beauty. The works consist of several bondage photographs made on commission, and images shot for Japanese Playboy. Editor Hisako Motoo writes in his afterword: "Snapshots of glinting neon nightgowns, backside figures walking in train stations seen only once and never again, the thrust-chin sidelong disdainful glance of a woman, scenes drawn to Moriyama's unwavering compass needle … after several decades film takes on mildewy discolorations until we're peering at scenes through a blur of frosted glass. As if the crisp coating of reality had worn away over time, misting into hazy mirages of memory." This beautiful slipcased hardcover volume features a tip-on front-cover image and is published in a limited edition of 1,000 copies (of which 200 are available through Artbook|D.A.P.). Each copy is signed by Moriyama on the title page, and both the book and the slipcase are numbered.

Text by Matthias Harder, Erik Kessels.

We are pleased to offer a limited quantity of signed copies of Daido Moriyama's Journey for Something (the unsigned trade edition is now sold out). Moriyama first attracted international attention in the 1970s, with his gritty, black-and-white photographs of Shinjuku, a bustling area of Tokyo. Published for a spring 2012 exhibition at Galerie Alex Daniels-Reflex, Amsterdam, and with more than 230 large-scale images, Journey for Something offers an exciting overview of Moriyama's new work, as well as his classic images and some never-before-seen photographs that have been carefully selected by the artist for this volume. Many of Moriyama's photographs are shot with a hand-held camera, at times through a window or from across the street. Comprising an assortment of playful and almost surrealist images reproduced in large format, Journey for Something follows Moriyama from Tokyo to Osaka, from shimmering rows of nightclubs to shoes dangling from a telephone wire and a man running naked through the streets.

Comprising a wide assortment of playful and almost surrealist images reproduced in large format, Journey for Something follows Moriyama from Tokyo to Osaka, from shimmering rows of nightclubs to shoes dangling from a telephone wire and a man running naked through the streets.

Daido Moriyama: Tales of TonoDaido Moriyama: Tales of Tono

Published by Tate/D.A.P..
Text by Daido Moriyama. Translation by Lena Fritsch. Afterword by Simon Baker.

Throughout his career, Daido Moriyama has produced a huge body of extremely influential photobooks, each demonstrating the variety and complexity of his work, from the blurred and grainy style of his early Provoke-era publications, to his more classic city- and object-based projects. Tales of Tono, appearing here for the first time in English, is one such book. First published in 1976, and taking its name from a collection of Japanese rural folk legends, Tales of Tono is a compact little volume composed of black-and-white photo diptychs and spreads that were shot in the countryside of northern Honshu, Japan. Faithfully reproducing the original edition, this book contains a text by the artist that offers the reader a typically honest and self-effacing account of Moriyama’s thoughts about his practice. More than 30 years since its original Japanese publication, Tales of Tono gives a fantastic insight into one of the world’s most original and provocative photographers. It is published to coincide with a survey of the artist’s work at Tate Modern, London.
Daido Moriyama was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1938 and moved to Tokyo in 1961, where he continues to live and work. His photography is characterized by powerful, high contrast black-and-white pictures, largely concentrating on little-seen parts of the city and highlighting the effects of industrialization on modern life in Japan. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Cartier Foundation, Paris; and the National Museum of Art, Osaka.

Daido Moriyama: Reflection and RefractionDaido Moriyama: Reflection and Refraction

Published by Asia One Books.
Edited by Hisako Motoo. Foreword by Daido Moriyama, Hisako Motoo, Satoshi Machiguchi, Blues Wong.

Daido Moriyama’s Reflection and Refraction is compiled from two earlier collections, Auto-portrait and Sunflower, published by MMM in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Carefully sequenced and handsomely printed in deep, resonant blacks that intensify the grainy textures Moriyama so famously elicits from his street scenes and interiors, Reflection and Refraction forms a cumulative record of Japan’s often contradictory social fabric. Moriyama’s images are intensely brooding and yet seemingly casual, establishing a relationship to the world that he likens to his shadow, in the brief preface to this volume: “I strolled down the street holding a camera, my shadow falling onto the road and across walls. With the sun high above, my shadow followed closely, as though pursuing me. The silhouette-shadow was now my companion […] This is how my shadow and I relate to each other. Similarly, my camera and I, or the world and photography also connect to each other in the same way.”

Labyrinth: Daido MoriyamaLabyrinth: Daido Moriyama

Published by Aperture.
Text by Daido Moriyama.

Throughout his career, Daido Moriyama has sought new ways of recasting his images through the use of different printing techniques, installation, or by re-editing and re-formatting them. For this volume, Moriyama has returned to his contact sheets from the past five decades, selecting both classic and previously unpublished images. Included here are reproductions of original contact sheets; sequences of new contact sheets made from recombined negative strips that juxtapose images from the 1950s with those from the past ten years; and selections of individual images, both familiar and newly discovered. Together, they offer a comprehensive assembly of Moriyama’s oeuvre, tracing recurring motifs and proposing startling new interpretations of some of his most iconic photographs. In opening up this private process of reexamination to a wider public, Moriyama continues to challenge the viewer, his own practice and the larger mechanisms by which photography makes meaning.
Daido Moriyama (born 1938) has been publishing and exhibiting his photography since the late 1960s, with a bibliography of more than 300 monographs to his name. A major retrospective, Daido Moriyama: Stray Dog, originated in 2000 at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and subsequently toured internationally to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Japan Society in New York, Fotomuseum Winterthur in Switzerland and numerous other venues. He is a recipient of the Cultural Award of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie and the 2012 Infinity Award for Lifetime Achievement. Exhibitions include a major retrospective, On the Road, presented at the Osaka National Museum of Art from June to October 2011, and William Klein/Daido Moriyama at Tate Modern from October 2012 to January 2013.

Daido Moriyama: Farewell PhotographyDaido Moriyama: Farewell Photography

Published by PowerShovelBooks.

This heavy, glossy, slipcased, reprinted reinterpretation of the legendary 1972 book, Farewell Photography, brings a much-sought-after classic back into print under the strict supervision of the artist, Daido Moriyama. Together with the publisher, Moriyama worked with larger prints and chose higher contrasts, abolishing all text in order to emphasize the dynamic, broken, blurred, vertiginously tilted, starkly cropped and timeless photography reproduced here. Moriyama is one of the most respected and influential photographers today, and this book bears the testimony of his early work, with all of its alluring landmark elements. Almost resulting in mayhem, these accidentally continuous black-and-white images can feel both invasive and intimate, as they freeze the animate and inanimate world before it is gone. An overwhelming torrent of early talent by an extraordinary artist.

Daido Moriyama: t-82Daido Moriyama: t-82

Published by PowerShovelBooks.

In 2006, Powershovel Books initiated a public art event by handing out "toy cameras" to anyone and everyone who would take one, and exhibiting a selection of the resulting photographs. (The "toy camera" in question was a Polga, a hybrid Holga camera that used Polaroid film.) One of the participants was the legendary Japanese street photographer, Daido Moriyama--and it is that series of darkly poetic photographs that this book so lovingly collects, offering a more-tranquil-than-usual walk around Tokyo, with the distinctive details of the urban landscape that only Moriyama could capture. The peculiar photographic qualities of the Polga add a unique taste and some layers of diffused grays to the timeless art of Daido Moriyama.
Daido Moriyama was born near Osaka in 1938. In 1960, he moved to Tokyo to join the eminent photographers` group VIVO, whose members include Shomei Tomatsu. Since then he has collaborated with other prominent Japanese photographers including Eikoh Hosoe and Araki. Retrospectives of his work have appeared at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among other important international venues. He continues to live and work in Tokyo.

Daido MoriyamaDaido Moriyama

Published by Editorial RM.
Introduction by José Lebrero. Text by Daido Moriyama.

Based on the retrospective exhibition organized by the Andalusian Center of Contemporary Art in Seville in March of 2007, this stunning book offers a new look at the work of Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama. An implacable visionary of our fragmented postmodern world, Moriyama is famous not only for his stark images of urban life but also for his transformation of everyday ordinariness, the stream of perceptions that our restless sense of sight registers at every moment of our waking hours. The volume includes a widely-ranging overview of Moriyma's highly contrasted, oddly-angled black-and-white photographs, including sixteen pages printed on yellow paper, which provides a new and unexpected support for these images. The striking cover of the catalogue is the creation of noted Japanese designer Tadanori Yokoo. The book includes a brief introductory text by José Lebrero Stals and a penetrating essay by Minoru Shimizu, which places Moriyama's work in the context of postmodern critical theory on photography, from Benjamin to Barthes to Derrida. Finally, a moving text by Moriyama himself -"Dialogue with Photography"- describes how he succeeded in abolishing the boundaries between subjectivity and objectivity in his art to explore the relentlessly momentary nature of photographs, "fossils of light and time".

Daido Moriyama: Shinjuku 19XX-20XXDaido Moriyama: Shinjuku 19XX-20XX

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essay by Zdenek Felix.

Daido Moriyama, who was born near Osaka in 1938, is one of the most influential representatives of contemporary Japanese photography. His unmistakable style, influenced by the work of Weegee, William Klein and Andy Warhol, has been evolving since the 1970s. His images, often made with a small, hand-held camera, draw viewers in with their diffuse, suggestive layers of gray. Moriyama is aptly characterized as a "hunter of light," and his preference for the atmospheric and enigmatic leads to beautiful abstractions of the Japanese urban landscapes. Shinjuku 19XX-20XX features previously unpublished photographs taken in the Tokyo district of Shinjuku, whose labyrinthine streets and dark eddies have always drawn Moriyama in. He says of the district, "Even though it wasn't a town that I liked because I wanted to like it, or became obsessed with because I wanted to be obsessed with it, the town of Shinjuku has a strange narcotic effect, and there is something about it that traps me and puts me under a spell."

Daido Moriyama: RemixDaido Moriyama: Remix

Published by Edition Kamel Mennour.
Essay by Patrick Remy.

Looking at a collection of photographs by Daido Moriyama is like hurtling through the city in a cab, spinning your head from side to side, up and down, to take in all the action. And the action doesn't stop with the click of Moriyama's shutter. As critic Patrick Remy notes in his introduction, “He endlessly plunges into his contact prints, tirelessly reprints his images, re-centers them, prints them horizontally or vertically to achieve the desired format at the time... enough to make you lose yourself in the maelstrom of his photos (his complete works list 5,758 references).” Close-ups of red, red lips and meticulously manicured hands (except for a bandage on the index finger--what happened?), snowy cityscapes, lonely hotel rooms, storefronts, beautiful women and a pig--no subject escapes him. Like Atget, whom he admires, Moriyama freezes urban evanescence, and like Hosoe, whom he assisted, he uncovers the intimate.

In 1971, Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama took a trip to New York City with Tadanori Yokoo. He stayed at the Chelsea Hotel and spent his days in The Museum of Modern Art Photography Study Center looking at pictures taken by Weegee. He shot 100 rolls of film with a half-frame camera, yielding 70 images per roll. Some of those pictures are presented here.

Daido MoriyamaDaido Moriyama

Published by Tate Gallery Pubns.

Daido Moriyama emerged from the Provoke movement of the 1960s, which challenged, primarily through its publications, the rigid artistic formalities of the Japanese photographic scene at that time, he created highly innovative and intensely personal work, often depicting what he saw as the breakdown of traditional values in post-war Japan. Born in 1938 in Osaka, Moriyama moved to Tokyo in 1961. He became a fully-fledged freelance photographer in 1964: among his early influences were his contemporary Shomei Tomatsu, as well as the work of William Klein in New York, Andy Warhol's silkscreened newspaper images, and the writings of Jack Kerouac. His pictures, are characterised by a gritty, high contrast black-and-white aesthetic, or 'are, bure, boke' (grainy, blurry, out-of-focus), concentrate on the little-seen parts of the city and the fragmentary nature of modern realities. This book, the only survey of Moriyama's work currently available in English, includes an introduction by Simon Baker, Curator of Photography at Tate, and two newly translated texts on the artist: 'The Myth of the City' by Koji Taki; and 'Reconsidering "Grainy, Blurry, Out-of-focus"' by Minoru Shimizu which was first published in Moriyama's seminal photobook Farewell Photography, and translated into English here for the first time. Produced to coincide with the William Klein + Daido Moriyama show at Tate Modern, this book provides not just an exhibition publication, but an essential monograph on a true benchmark figure of modern photography.
