■ DAIDO MORIYAMA "RECORD:No.27" e-Book Version

"These photos were taken from what I'd rather describe as "a promenader's view". "

DAIDO MORIYAMA   (Experts from the original text of Record No.27)   

”That's because it surely is easy to release the shutter button and take pictures, but that consious sense of distance that hovers in the space between the photographer and the photographed always contains some severe and delicate issues beyond imagination.”-DAIDO MORIYAMA (Experts from the original text of Record No.27) The photos included in ” RECORD : No.27"are all taken in Hong Kong in March 2014.
This is the first issue of RECORD series with the mixture of Color and Monochrome photos. The images here contains the symbolic monochromatic vision and the worldly visions in color. And then the TV screen of anti government activists flooding all around the city and the streets where he also walked and snapped the photos.
"I have no choice but to think once again about myself, about photography, about the world, about the stance of photographing things, and about the significance of snapshots."

"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.

Born in Ikeda, Osaka, Daidō Moriyama studied photography under Takeji Iwamiya before moving to Tokyo in 1961 to work as an assistant to Eikoh Hosoe. He produced a collection of photographs, on "Nippon gekijō shashinchō" Though not exclusively, Moriyama predominantly takes high contrast, grainy, black and white photographs within the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, often shot from odd angles. Moriyama's photography has been influenced by Seiryū Inoue, Shōmei Tōmatsu, William Klein, Andy Warhol, Eikoh Hosoe, the Japanese writer Yukio Mishima, the dramatist Shūji Terayama, and Jack Kerouac's "On the Road".
