■ DAIDO MORIYAMA "RECORD:No.26" e-Book Version

"Loveable Ikebukuro, redoutable Ikebukuro"

DAIDO MORIYAMA   (Experts from the original text of Record No.26)   

Daido Moriyama's primal subject was in Shinjuku, but t hen he accidentally struck into a street snapshot the he took at Ikebukuro while he was walking around the city, ignited the passion to shoot more of this town … .starting at West Ikebukuro where he was living for the past 10 years. The scent of the streets of Shinjuku and Ikebukuro are not the same, even in a smilar Terminal Station which locates at the center of both. The heatwave and t he impact steaming up from the people residing deep inside the town. This is Daido Moriyama's Ikebukuro Street Vision that he spent 1 year to accomplish.

"It was 34 years ago, back in 1972, that I came out with the self-published photo journal 'Kiroku.' At the time, I was busy with all sorts of work for magazines. Partly because of a daily feeling inside that I shouldn't let myself get carried away by it all, I came up with the idea of a small, self-published personal photo journal. Without any ties to work or any fixed topic, I just wanted to continue publishing a 16-page booklet with an arbitrary selection of favorite photos among the pictures I snapped from day to day. By nature, it was directed first and foremost to myself rather than other people. I wanted a simple, basic title, so I called it 'Kiroku' (record). "
However, the publication of 'Kiroku' sadly ended with issue number five. Now, thanks to the willpower and efforts of Akio Nagasawa, 'Kiroku' the magazine has resumed publication. Or rather, we should call it a fresh publication. With the hope that it will continue this time, I am selfishly thinking of asking Mr. Nagasawa to publish 'Kiroku' at a pace of four issues per year. I happily accept his proposal and look forward now to embarking on a new 'voyage of recording.'"- Daido Moriyama
e-Book version of "Record series" was originally released in Ju ne, 2013 domestic in Japan, and it has been released worldwide in September, 2014 from Apple iBookstore and Kindle Store. e-Book version of "Record Series" will continue.
